🎂 🌸 TWO YEARS STRONG 🌸🎂 Please join Frida Friday ATX as we celebrate TWO years of being Austin’s premier Latinx led, Womxn of Color Centered, monthly marketplace and cultural space.

Two years ago we started with some simple (but pretty radical) ideas:

1. Communities of color in #atx deserve a space to be seen and celebrated.

2. Creating marketplaces that center Womxn of Color, could help bridge the wage gap, and,

3. Supporting and amplifying Womxn of Color led economies could potentially help keep working class families in their #atx communities.

During 2017 #sxsw week, we started with 14 vendors a month, and we’ve kept growing! This month we’ll be hosting close to 50 makers and vendors from Austin, and beyond. We invite you to #sxsupportlocal and come check out what our amazing local communities have to offer!

In 2017, Frida Friday ATX was Austin’s first Womxn of Color Centered monthly mercado, and we’ve been proudly centering womxn of color for TWO FULL YEARS. When we started our mercados, we started with only 14 rotating vendors. We were so hungry for a Womxn of Color space that we crossed our fingers every month *hoping* we’d be able to fill those spaces. And, guess what y’all? We did! Over these years we’ve worked with an average of over 150+ self-identified WoC per year, and we’ve grown our community in ways we never imagined. We’re proud to say that we’re now Austin’s largest monthly WOC Centered Marketplace (y mucho más) and we’re continuing to grow. As we enter into our third year we’re celebrating the community that helped make us the Fierce AF crew that we are. We’re here to prove that homegirls really do support homegirls and we mean it! We’ve got more in store this year than ever before and we’re so proud to celebrate our bday y’all!

And, we’re bringing ALL the magic and community we’re known for to all the events of this week!
More info to come but save the date. We’re so excited to see you.
