OKGO Market Brings More Than 200 Local Businesses To Tulsa

More than 200 Oklahoma small businesses have the opportunity to sell their products under one roof on Saturday.

OKGO Market brings in vendors from around the state to support locals and provide a unique shopping experience.

OKGO Market gives local merchants a boost like Broken Arrow native Jennifer Lynn.

Lynn owns Veteran Laser Co. creating laser cut and engraved items out of acrylic and wood.     

Lynn said “I think it's awesome because you get to see the face behind the creators, and you get a more personal experience."

This market gives small businesses a chance to sell goods alongside each other and interact with customers in person.         

It's an extension of Tulsa Go, which is a digital platform highlighting events, attractions, and entertainment in the city.

The Managing Partner Erik-Michael Collins said "We wanted a hands-on experience as well to give all these local small businesses the opportunity to be face to face with their client base”.

Collins said merchants represent 56 cities across Oklahoma and each booth is set apart from jewelry to clothing, wine, and homemade treats, macrame, soaps and pottery.

"I think that one of the things with small businesses is that every product has a story behind it,” Collins said.

Goldie Links owned by Claire Sbanotto and her sister started their business a year ago as a family business for the two to spend time together Sbanotto said.

Collins said that's what this event is all about and providing a platform for local shops and an outlet for customers to support them.

"Every single merchant has that very unique reason as to why they're making what they're doing and why they love being a part of the Oklahoma small business community” said Collin.

Due to the market growing each year it has moved to a bigger space.

OKGO Market is free admission and open for shopping from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

The first 50 people to arrive get a free tote bag.
