May Mart

What is May Mart?

Inspired by the spirit of the ubiquitous street markets found in cities, towns and villages in Asian, South Asian and Pacific Islander countries around the world, May Mart is an invitation to experience the vibrant diversity of food, art, craft, trade, wares and services of Evanston’s ASPA business owners!   

 

May is Asian, South Asian, Pacific Islander American (ASPA) Heritage Month and May Mart is our way of supporting local ASAPIA-owned businesses!
