Taking BLK “Gottingen” is a grass roots vendors market born in the North End of Halifax, Founded by two local African Nova Scotian women. Taking BLK is a 30 plus all Black/African Nova Scotian travelling market with upcoming, new and emerging businesses. The variety of business and goods extend from art, clothing, jewellery, skin care, food, baked goods and more. Taking BLK thrives on promoting, supporting, and giving opportunity to the Black/ African Nova Scotian businesses in our communities while ensuring we all have equal access to exposure and opportunity.
The Halifax Brewery Market is located on unceded Mi'kmaq territory. This territory is covered by the Peace and Friendship Treaties which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
