This August, Prosperity Market– roving farmers market targeting black farmers, food producers and home cooks a Black Business Scavenger Hunt which takes Angelenos on a city trip through Inglewood, Compton, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Pasadena, the Valley and more.

In honor of Black Business Month, Prosperity Market founders Cara Steele and Carmen Dayan partnered with over 50 black food, fashion, arts and entertainment entrepreneurs and developed clues to encourage attendees to discover new-to-them gems and support local shops, cafes, galleries, etc.

Destinations will range from a luxury wine bar to designer retail to the best cafes and restaurants from vegan to soul food. The Black Business Scavenger Hunt is sponsored by Wells Fargo and the Black Co-operative Investment Fund (BCIF).

“Our goal with Prosperity Market in general and the Black Business Scavenger Hunt in particular is to highlight black-owned businesses in Los Angeles, encourage consumers to shop, and most importantly show unity and a shared commitment to supporting our community,” says co-founder and Executive Director Carmen Dayan.

“While Prosperity Market focuses primarily on food, the Scavenger Hunt gives us an opportunity to showcase black entrepreneurs in industries outside of the culinary world,” says co-founder and COO Cara Steele. “We want to raise the visibility of these establishments so we can keep valuable dollars circulating in the black economy.”

Each week in August, Prosperity Market releases clues on its website and Instagram (@Prosperity.Market) to unlock the designated locations. Participants can earn points by visiting locations, checking in, and taking a photo with a QR code and sharing on Instagram (or via email, for those without social media).

Additional points can be earned by making a purchase at each location, attending special events during the month, or taking pictures of Nipsey Hussle murals. Participants with the most points at the end of the month will win special prizes revealed at the Prosperity Market Farmers Market on August 27.

Prosperity Market is a mobile farmers market featuring black farmers, food producers, entrepreneurs, artists, florists and chefs. Through pop-up farmers markets and events held regularly around Los Angeles, Prosperity Market makes it easy to support local black-owned businesses while creating community food access.

Founded amid the pandemic and social unrest of 2020 by makeup and fashion industry vets Carmen Diane and Cara Steele, Prosperity Market has now expanded across the city and plans to launch a Farmers Market on Wheels.
