At the 20th Annual INFRA Conference held in St. Paul, Minnesota at the end of June, Kindred Market was honored to receive the Equitable Access Award, a Brix award that celebrates the work Kindred Market has done to seek out and promote brands founded and led by people in the BIPOC community, women, and the LGBTQ community. To learn more about these exciting brands and their products, check out the directories on the Kindred Market website or come into the market and look for the shelf talkers and signage promoting these products in our aisles.

Congratulations to the Kindred staff who work hard to cultivate an inclusive space for all!
