Business Spotlight - April 2023 53212Marketplace Edition

Greeting Friends and Neighbors:

Did you know that May is National Small Business Month? Are you fretting about getting that perfect gift for Mother's Day? What better time to mark your calendars for a local entrepreneur and small business extravaganza coming up in the neighborhood!

Riverworks' 53212Marketplace: Mother's Day Edition is happening on Sunday, May 7th from 11:00 - 4:00pm at West River Collective, 3700 N Fratney Street, home of Amorphic Beer. The event is free and open to the public. Come out and support local businesses as you sip, stroll and shop for those special women in your life. What's that you say? You already bought something for dear ol 'Ma? Good for you, pat yourself on the back and buy something extra nice for el numero uno, YOU!

Quench your thirst with libations from Amorphic Beer or specialty coffee drinks from Style Pop Café. Satisfy your hunger with grub from Don Pastor Food Truck. Browse the artistic and useful wares of local maker The Urban Craftsman. And, of course, fill up your shopping bags with amazing body products, candles, textiles, art, jewelry, specialty foods, plants, books and more!
