Loca for Local is back this month, this time in honor of International Women’s Day. The event will take place Saturday, March 12 from 12 pm to 5 pm at BUS and will honor, celebrate and support the women of small businesses from around the Coastal Bend.

Women business owners have been a driving force in the Coastal Bend’s small business community, bringing quality goods to shoppers for years. This event is designed to celebrate the hard work put into these businesses while supporting the thriving creative community. With a variety of vendors, from jewelry to snacks, and pottery to cosmetics, there’s truly something for everyone to take home.

The first 100 shoppers will receive a complimentary Loca for Local tote bag, perfect for carrying your market haul home. The event, which is both child and pet friendly, is free of charge and the perfect stop to kick off Spring Break with the family. With more than twenty vendors, live music by DJ Koala Khool, face paintings by Monica Marie Garcia, food trucks, and more, Loca for Local will be a great time for everyone.
