In 2018, data analytics company Nielsen reported that African-American buying power has reached $1.2 trillion. However, that cash doesn’t stay in the community for long, as research has found that a dollar circulates in the black community for just six hours. Compare that to Asian communities, where $1 circulates for 30 days; Jewish communities, which are at 20 days; and white communities, where that number is 17 days. With this in mind, Juxtaposition Arts is hosting a pop-up market where folks interested in supporting black makers, businesses, and service providers can meet. Try foodstuffs like boiled peanuts, syrups, and traditional African dishes; shop fashion from Twin Cities designers; and chat with people running neighborhood barbershops and more.
