More About The Queer Mercado:

The Queer Mercado is the first permanent FREE LGBTQ+ marketplace in Southern California. The event takes place on the third Saturday of each month on the Eastside of Los Angeles. The purpose of the unique space is to uplift, celebrate and support new businesses and talent in and around East Los Angeles through a holistic approach in the marketplace/vendor community. The intention is to create economic opportunities for Queer/LGBTQ+ community members, and specifically those that traditionally have not been afforded the opportunities to activate and elevate their brands, art and innovative ideas.

The Queer Mercado creates a safe space to engage the local community. Vendor fees generated at the Mercado are donated to local high schools to engage youth in job training opportunities. The Mercado helps to foster a welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ community members to ensure that they see themselves represented and celebrated in a supportive and loving community.
