What’s Up With The Trailer
So what’s up with the trailer, you ask? Progress!
Prosperity Market turns one this year and we have been working steadily to bring our farmers market on wheels to life! In addition to running our monthly farmers market pop-ups and other innovative activations, we are creating a mobile farmers market which will house all of our amazing farmers and food entrepreneurs! That means we can bring our curated farmers market experience right to you! We are truly making it easy to support local, black businesses while also creating food access in our communities.
In this episode we visit LA Stainless Kings to make a payment on our trailer! Also mentioned in this episode is the JLH Social Impact Fund, Fund Black Founders, and Crowdfund Better.
We received a grant from the JLH Social Impact Fund, created by Jrue & Lauren Holiday to support black entrepreneurs and change makers. What’s so special about JLH is that they truly set us up for success. Along with their generous financial contribution they also provided mentorship and support to 50 businesses and nonprofits through 2 incredible companies. https://www.jlhfund.org/
Fund Black Founders is a platform for black entrepreneurs to raise money for their business. Crowdfund Better is an organization that helps entrepreneurs prepare to raise money non-traditionally through crowdfunding. https://www.fundblackfounders.com/ https://www.crowdfundbetter.com/
