About Us

BIPOC Market

We are so grateful for all who joined us on April 9 for our first free, public, outdoor market featuring businesses owned and operated by Black, Indigenous & People of Color. Organized by students from our Upper Schools Community Engagement (s)Elective, we were thrilled to offer this event to the greater South Sound community, and hope to make this an annual event!  Thank you to all the vendors and community participants who made this such a special event!
In addition to an amazing line-up of BIPOC vendors, we are grateful for the entertainers who joined us and helped build incredible energy and to the students who staffed activity tables for our youngest visitors! 

Thank you!

  • A & G Crafts

    We are a mother and daughter team. Mom retired from the medical profession in 2009 and lives in an active retirement community and loves to do all kinds of craft projects with or without friends. When COVID-19 lockdown hit, mom was creating almost 14 hours a day and giving away crafts to family and community or put into storage. That's where the daughter comes in. Daughter's house is full of crafts and suggested mom turn her hobby into a business and here we are.
