Prosperity Market in collaboration with Council District 10 is hosting a pop-up market at the newly minted Obama Sports Complex on Saturday, August 27, which will serve as the grand finale to its month-long Black Business Scavenger Hunt. After visiting Black-owned businesses across LA over the last month, Scavenger Hunt participants can discover even more hidden gems and celebrate their efforts alongside their fellow hunters and find out who racked up the most points.
Over 30 vendors will be featured–including Bridgetown Roti, All Chill Ice Cream, California Coffee Company, and Farmer Ken – as well as a live DJ, and remarks from Los Angeles City Council District 10 Deputy Chief of Staff Kimani Black. The event is free and open to the public.
In honor of Black Business Month (August), Prosperity Market founders Kara Still and Carmen Dianne created a series of clues that led participants to a series of over 50 Black-owned businesses throughout Los Angeles. Participants who have visited the most locations over the past month will win prizes including tickets to Grace Jones at The Hollywood Bowl, items from participating businesses, and more.
Prosperity Market is a mobile farmers market featuring Black farmers, food producers, entrepreneurs, artists, florists, and chefs. Through pop-up farmers markets and events regularly hosted around Los Angeles, Prosperity Market makes it easy to support local Black businesses while creating food access in the community.
Founded amid the pandemic and social unrest of 2020 by makeup and fashion industry vets Carmen Dianne and Kara Still, Prosperity Market has now expanded throughout the city, and plans to launch a farmers market on wheels.
