MGB POPS (Mother Gaston Boulevard POPS) is the transformation of a long-standing, City-owned vacant lot into a unique local pop-up market in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The site now supports numerous small businesses and local entrepreneurs by offering affordable rent space, businesses support services and community event space. The idea for a pop-up marketplace stems directly from discussions with the community at the Hope Summit, a neighborhood planning event organized by Community Solutions, our partner organization for this initiative. 

For more information on market news and events, see the MGB POPS Facebook page below.
