Marcus Performing Arts Center hosts the 'Blackity Black Holiday Market'

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Marcus Performing Arts Center was transformed into the "Blackity Black Holiday Market" today.

HYFIN, a local Milwaukee radio station, and MKE Black, co-hosted the event.

The market featured more than 40 local black-owned businesses.

A HYFIN DJ also curated music for the local market.

Community organizers say that events like these help customers keep their money in Milwaukee.

"It's really about circulating money back into the community and supporting our local black-owned businesses for the holidays," said DJ Bruwer, community engagement coordinator of HYFIN.

MKE Black has been hosting events like these in the summertime.

But this was the first black-owned holiday themed market.
