Why sell on the YW Marketplace? 

YWMarketplace is “Shopping with a Purpose.” We designed this e-commerce site with the intent to support local nascent or growing women and minority-owned businesses “sellers” (WMBEs) by providing access to market or distribution channels. For the shopper, it provides a vehicle to support the advancement of BIPOC founders. For YWCA, the marketplace is intended to provide a source of earned income with net income reinvested back into programs.

We are focused on increasing the economic empowerment of underrepresented communities with the larger goal to help close the wealth gap. If you are looking for local, under-represented founders, create your free online account today! 
Current categories include: apparel; cards & books; art & photgraphy; consulting & services; jewelry & accessories; health & wellness; home & lifestyle.
