THE SOKO MARKETPLACE IN HISTORIC HANNIBAL SQUARE IN WINTER PARK, FL

November 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come and enjoy great vendors, food, and music during our Sunday SOKO Market stroll!

The SOKO Marketplace is a creation of The Equity Council Corp. to benefit the Historic African-American neighborhood of Hannibal Square through a process of collective community restoration! The goal of the monthly marketplace is simple; re-establish an economic opportunity zone that fits the needs of its local residents both past and present that have been displaced by gentrification. Bringing a marketplace into the historic African-American neighborhood of Hannibal Square will allow our community the opportunity to exchange goods and services while building a rapport with the other minority businesses and entrepreneurs throughout the Central Florida area. SOKO which means “market” in Swahili is not just a market its a movement! Thank you in advance for helping our community build a platform to create a community -wide economic resurgence, and we look forward to seeing you at our community marketplace every first Sunday of the month! Thank you in advance for participating in our market and supporting minority-owned businesses!

*If you are a vendor or a performer wishing to participate in the SOKO Marketplace, please check out our Instagram Bio @thesokomarketplace and complete our easy online application.

See you at the market!
