Behind the Scenes

Our Mission

At The Saturday Shoppes, we are committed to fostering an inclusive marketplace that educates and uplifts the talents and aspirations of minorities and women. Our mission is to provide a dynamic platform where diversity thrives, businesses flourish, and communities are strengthened.

Our vision is to be a supportive and equitable space for vendors to showcase their products and services. Our marketplace is a testament to the power of unity, where diverse perspectives fuel innovation, economic growth, and lasting connections.

Our Founder

The Saturday Shoppes is the brainchild of Renee Edwards. The vision of the Shoppes is to create economic development opportunities for emerging businesses through our fast growing monthly markets.

Renee is passionate about ensuring the development and success of all Saturday Shoppes participants. Edwards has also founded the Saturday Shoppes Academy to provide business coaching, business etiquette, resources, marketing, and licensure that would allow hobby vendors to grow their business and income.

Her goal is simple: she would like to ensure that every vendor is able to pay their largest monthly expense through sales from the Saturday Shoppes. The Saturday Shoppes has a low cost vendor fee that enables vendors of all size to have exposure by creating a large market presence. Vendors are offered guidance along their journey to help guarantee success. Edwards has demonstrated a proven model for success with her own businesses and is now using her acquired knowledge to benefit over 150 vendors monthly.


Our Team 

Thanks to the efforts of our supreme staff members, the Saturday Shoppes is able to deliver quality events in multiple cities.
