The Marketplace

This summer we are opening a permanent marketplace in Downtown Durham for local small and micro businesses to have an onramp to success. We are now accepting applications for vendors large and small!


The Vendor Community


Our marketplace will also feature a robust vendor community for you to be able to rub shoulders with like-minded entrepreneurs. Our vendors are gifted a membership to our co-working space, will have regular events and workshops catered to business growth, and have access to a dynamic community of builders, doers, and dreamers.

Come Build With Us


Are you a creative seeking an opportunity to share your big dreams with the world? Are you eager to find a retail space and move beyond the online marketplace? Do you care about social entrepreneurship and redemptive enterprise? Join us as a vendor at the Pioneers Marketplace!

We are creating a marketplace to uplift and support local makers, create avenues for artists to get their start, and encourage vibrant community in downtown Durham. Our building has an incredible walking score of 87, and is located right in the heart of soaring new development. Rather than operating as a wholesale store, we want to elevate you as the vendors by keeping your names front and center, and we are offering a wide variety of staggered space rental options to make selling through us as accessible as possible for small/micro businesses.
