Pop Up Markets
Pop Up markets are great ways to offer a platform for emerging businesses in the neighborhood. Here are some ways to do so.
First - make sure you have the necessary permits from the city to offer this market, which includes business as well as site licenses and insurance.
Second - find a safe and accessible space for businesses to set up shop - could be a parking lot, a large open space in a building or a section of a street.
Third - work with a local community development corporation to make sure the businesses are set up for success and have necessary insurance and other protections.
Fourth - implement an effective marketing campaign to bring people to the event
