A maker's market for the South Bay LGBTQ+ & Leather community... and a mini Flea Market!
The Forbidden Market — your one and only South Bay LGBTQ+ & Leather Market Fair — is back on track after the storm ✨ Missed opportunities may have broken a few hearts, but fear not — we've got the perfect remedy: retail therapy that doubles as support for local small business owners! (Well, it's almost as good as real therapy.)
We will be brimming with talented artisans and creators from the Bay Area, along with your friendly neighborhood kink event orgs! And a Flea Market section to either vend your pre-loved items or embark on a treasure hunt for your new favorite toys/outfit!
We are open for vendor applications now! Please check the details below in the section “For Vendors & Booths” if you are interested in selling your arts & crafts!
Date: 3rd March 2024
Time: 3pm - 7pm
(Door open for Vendors to set up @2pm)
