COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - A local nonprofit is hosting a market this weekend to help showcase Black-owned businesses.

The REACH Project’s 4 the Culture Market is Saturday, Feb. 4 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship at 1700 Research Parkway on Texas A&M’s campus.

There will be vendors selling everything from clothes and accessories to body butter and desserts, along with activities for children, food vendors, and more. There will be a live concert from 2-3 p.m.

The goal is to promote newly launched businesses and share their products and services with the entire community. In February 2022, The REACH project joined the 1 MBB partnership with Operation HOPE and the McFerrin Center, with a goal of launching one million Black-owned businesses by the 2030. Last year’s event helped launch 35 Black-owned LLCs, four 501(c)3s, and one 501(c)4 right here in the Brazos Valley.
