Our Story

The Black Owned e-Marketplace c/o BOM YEG Team is 100% volunteer run.

At BOM YEG, we work tirelessly to connect small Black-Owned businesses with a wider audience in Edmonton, Alberta so they can better thrive on their own.

At BOM YEG, we create physical spaces & virtual platforms for small businesses owned by Black folks. We aim to support Black businesses and creatives with valuable resources to reduce the inequality gap.

Black-Owned businesses experience many barriers when registering, running and selling at Edmonton farmers markets.

We understand that creating safe & welcoming spaces and platforms are at the heart of bringing communities together.

The Black-Owned Market was created to provide Black-Owned small businesses with a platform and welcoming space to test, launch or sell their products. 

BOM YEG aims to explore and implement innovative ways to create memorable and relevant experiences to unite Albertans, and further connect them with their communities while delivering value back to all of our sponsors and our community partners.
