Introducing mitú Mercado: Our Curated Marketplace Where We Feature The Most Talented Latinx Business Owners And Their Unique Products
We all recognize the importance of supporting Latino and Latina businesses, but they aren’t always easy to find. That’s why we created mitú Mercado, a curated marketplace that features amazing finds from Latino and Latina owned businesses. Each vendor is specifically chosen based on their ponte las pilas attitude, uniqueness of their product and the quality of their craft. Whether you’re looking for a gift for someone or in the mood to shop for yourself and want to support your community, the mitú Mercado is the number one destination for amazing finds.
