We’re thrilled that the Seaport x Black Owned Bos. Market partnership has created new, exciting opportunities to connect over 70 local Black-owned businesses with thousands of neighborhood residents and visitors since its inception last year.”

Jae’da Turner, Founder & Managing Director of Black Owned Bos., said, “At the heart of a commercial district in Boston, Seaport Common has been a phenomenal location to kick off the Seaport x Black Owned Bos. outdoor market. As a pop-up, the market is a one-of-a-kind experience – creating a sense of belonging and community for the vendor partners and all of the patrons.
