BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — From gifts and apparel to packaged foods and skincare products, the Seaport District's outdoor market for Black-owned businesses had something for everyone on Sunday.
The Seaport x Black Owned Bos. Market, hosted by WS Development and Boston Seaport, showcased dozens of Greater Boston's Black-owned businesses on Seaport Common in recognition of National Black Business Month.
Vendors, who were set up from noon to 6 p.m. in pop-up tented areas, included Clarke’s Cakes & Cookies, a popular 20-year old vegan bakery in Dorchester recently praised for its delicious baked goods by MarthaStewart.com.
Others included Q Made It; an online shop that sells pop culture inspired merchandise, and True 9 Accessories; which sells handmade fabric, wooden and beaded jewelry that bridge the gap between urban and corporate wear.
The Seaport District said it had implemented numerous COVID-related precautions at the market. All market guests were required to register online and book a 30 minute visit, and all staff, patrons and vendors were required to wear a mask at all times.
