The GLO Market is a monthly event supporting local queer-owned businesses and resources. Started in 2023, GLO Markets aim to showcase local talent where patrons can purchase from over 20+ LGBTQIA+ artists, resources, and entrepreneurs.

The GLO Market happens every third Saturday each month from 10 AM – 2 PM at The GLO Center. 

Whether you are a well-seasoned vendor or a newbie, we would love for you to join our markets! Click the link below to sign up for updates on participating in upcoming events. Note, signing up for these events is first come, first serve, and you can choose to vend inside The GLO Center or in our parking lot. We also offer tables and chairs for vendors.
