The Architect of Black Space firm, along with the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department, announced this week that the Gate City’s Street Night Market will start up on Sunday evening, April 28. The market is described in an announcement from the city as “a curated space to buy local, buy used, and support local Black-owned businesses.”

The market will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. that evening on the Downtown Greenway at the intersection of Elm Street and Bragg Street.

The May market will be held on Saturday, May 18. The event will then, from June to October, take place on the last Saturday of every month.

It’s one effort of the South Side Series, which is a program attempting to invigorate parts of southeast Greensboro of the city by bringing “engaging community events that uplift, celebrate, and invest in the Black culture, traditions, institutions and identity of southeast Greensboro neighborhoods.”

 Architect of Black Space, which is led by longtime community activist April Parker, produces “original cultural work rooted in Black culture,” according to the city’s description of the event.

 The description continues: “The firm’s ‘architects’ – anti-racist, multiracial, and Black-prioritized queer organizers – provide project management, racial equity consultation and trainings, public scholarship and research, community liaison, and urban planning services.”

Those interested in being an arts and craft vendor or food vendor for the market series should contact the City Of Greensboro’s Parks and Recreation Department.
