LOGAN SQUARE — Ladies of Logan, a group dedicated to lifting up the neighborhood’s women entrepreneurs, is teaming up with Revolution Brewing for its second market.
About 50 vendors are slated to participate in the upcoming Ladies of Logan market, set for noon-6 p.m. March 8 at Revolution Brewing’s taproom at 3340 N. Kedzie Ave.
“When Mary [Nisi] and I began talking about Ladies of Logan we thought it would be a small event and slowly grow. The support and interest we’ve received has been incredible,” co-founder Kelly Marie Thompson said in an email.
“Watching and experiencing the networking grow throughout the community shows how great our neighborhood truly is.”
The market is being held on International Women’s Day and on the first day of Women’s Week, a series of events billed as a “weeklong celebration of women-identifying businesses in Logan Square.”
The market will double as a release party for Revolution’s new IPA, called Spirit of Revolt. All of the beer proceeds will benefit the organization Connections for Abused Women & their Children.
Thompson, owner of flower and gift shop Fleur, and Nisi, co-owner of Ampersand cowork and the DJ company Toast & Jam, founded Ladies of Logan last summer to put women business owners, or “lady bosses,” in the spotlight.
“There [are] a lot of women who own awesome businesses in Logan Square — some have brick-and-mortars and some don’t. This is a great way to get those people in front of more people,” Nisi previously said.
