Athens Black Market and Business Development

Athens Black Market is designed to encourage Black entrepreneurship and to provide an opportunity for minority business owners to  generate an income while serving the community. Our goal is to create a more diverse and inclusive community, combat poverty, achieve economic justice, and reduce the racial wealth gap. To create an equitable community we must encourage our local government to create space and allocate funds that is designated to support and stimulate black and minority business ownership.

Athens Black Market will be held the last Saturday of each month starting July 29th thru November 2017.
