Shop Women- and Minority-Owned Businesses in Grand Rapids

Support small local businesses owned by women and minorities by visiting Arts Marketplace in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our mission with this inclusive space is to provide a hub for the community that will improve the retail presence downtown, as well as provide support for the diverse and talented artists and makers in our city.

Investing in the Local Community

Arts Marketplace allows you to invest in your community both by supporting local businesses and promoting diversity and inclusion throughout your area. By shopping and spending your money with our local women and minority makers, you invest in their businesses and help them thrive and flourish. This also benefits the economy and will help to make Grand Rapids a more attractive location for retail shoppers. By visiting and supporting a community space that aims to foster an inclusive, vibrant, and diverse downtown Grand Rapids, you are also investing in your community by making everyone feel safe and welcome.


Entertaining the Local Community

Grand Rapids, MI, is a wonderful place to live, but there are not many places to shop in the downtown area. The Arts Marketplace aims to provide more retail experiences in downtown Grand Rapids while supporting local vendors and promoting diversity and inclusion. Arts Marketplace consists of two main areas where you can shop high-quality goods and products made by local minority vendors, including:

  • Pack Elephant: Pack Elephant is the anchor tenant of Arts Marketplace, and it owns 3,000 square feet of our space’s available 5,000 square feet. They are a gifting box company that carries a selection of unique items like jewelry, candles, body care, and more from over 60 local makers. Explore the store and curate your own unique box with hand-made gifts and goods that you will treasure.
  • Pop-up Room: The other areas to shop at Arts Marketplace is our pop-up room, where local makers can showcase and sell their products like art, clothing, furniture, and more. Vendors change frequently depending on the season, but you will always find beautiful high-quality products being sold. If you are looking for a unique gift or want to support small and locally owned businesses, visit the Arts Marketplace today.
