This month we’re keeping our support for Black-Owned Brands local. Brooklyn is a melting pot of talents—many without the resources to market and promote their products and services. Sure Social Media has helped many local brands get their products and services out there. But in a space where the noise is so loud, it can sometimes be a challenge to get people to commit to your brand.
Spotlighting black-owned and local brands are near and dear to my heart.
Here are Five Black-Owned Brands to support this month:
A place to find a little bit of everything. A curated selection of African and Caribbean-inspired Homegoods. Perfect place to find a lovely holiday gift (hint).
401-403 Tompkins Avenue — Bedford Stuyvesant
BLK MKT Vintage
Looking for something with a bit of history and character, let me introduce you to BLK MKT Vintage.
465 Marcus Garvey Blvd. — Bedford Stuyvesant
Rituals + Ceremony
A magical place to browse for Homegoods, books, self-care items, and so much more.
717B Nostrand Avenue — Crown Heights
Happy Cork Brooklyn
A happy place that houses one of the largest selections of black, POC, and women-owned spirits. An inspiration.
15 Buffalo Avenue — Bedford Stuyvesant
This brand Needs little to no introduction. Try their blue velvet cupcakes. I bought a dozen of them a few days ago, and they have been the perfect companion to my AM coffee. But seriously, try any baked goods or orders for a special occasion.
702 Washington Avenue — Prospect Heights
Here’s a bonus:
Trade Street Jam Co
I love spices — they are invigorating and can make a great deal more extraordinary. I was gifted a bottle of Raspberry Hot Sauce from Trade Street. I knew I had to learn more about this brand. I’m excited to try her jams.
