Cuando te veo, se me hace agua la boca.  Y cuando te pruebo, se me incha la trompa.  Lo unico que no me gusta es que muy seguido, me tienes bien embarrada. Te gusta como te tomo todo el dia Ve?

"The most important investment of our time is in our community and our youth"

My participation in the all Latina Goddess Mercado was very empowering for a young girl like me. Everyone was so sweet and made me feel welcomed. Honestly, I didn't expect that! I now feel incredibly fortunate to be a young Latina from this neighborhood. As a new businesswoman I felt like I had a lot of support at this new market. Seeing so many boss Latina women doing their thing really made me feel like I belong to this community. I feel that as Latina entrepreneurs we face similar barriers and struggles.  It felt good to know I was around relatable women that I could share experiences with . I am happy that I am now part of this community!

I am a student and reside in Boyle Heights. I started my business last august to help distract myself from all the crazy things going on in the world. Then I found my love for baking and making sweets by exploring other things I could make to help grow my business. My educational goal is to become a child psychologist and help children through emotional barriers and trauma so that they can succeed in school and life.  Thank you for supporting me at our next #thegoddessmercado!

A BUNCH OF CHINGONAS

A BUNCH OF CHINGONAS

 

Thankful for our all of our mothers, sisters, and teachers who have guided us and made us the women we are today. We need to share our stories in order to empower other women.

In Los Angeles

 

THE GODDESS MERCADO: Come meet a group of women who are crafters, creators and entrepreneurs. They all do this from home! Some are full-time mothers and employed. These chingonas are witches, goddesses and storytellers (one blackbelt).  You will see that these chicanas are fearless, hardworking,  passionate, loving,  and strong.  It just so happens that they are all absolutely  gorgeous and fabulous.  What I love the most is that they all have very strong roots in my "hood".  Come to our monthly The Goddess Mercado.  Join us, support us,  eat some local food vendors and  have some fun! This for sure will continue help empower and build community.

Thank you for allowing us to create a safe space where we can meet, greet, eat, chat, shop, empower, and have some fun in our home town

 

Market is second Saturday of the month, 9am-3pm.
