The Indigenous Red Market is a monthly pop-up cultural marketplace that began in summer 2018.  Held the first Sunday of each month, from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, on the Oakland Native American Health Center grounds - 3050 International Blvd, the Market is not only an opportunity to support and purchase indigenous products, art, clothing and traditional and contemporary Native foods, but to also enjoy Native American musicians, artists and performers, art and culture to promote and highlight the Urban Native American experience.  Importantly to the Native American Community, it is an opportunity to gather as a community to support each other and build Native pride in our children and families. Over time, the Market has grown to 15 vendors each month, cultural entertainment program and over 300 visitors. 

The theme for the May 5th Red Market is to celebrate Native Youth through the unveiling of the CEDAR Center Building (3124 International Blvd) Mural, funded by the Akonadi Foundation. The 50 x 50 foot tall mural, which will be painted on the side of the Center, will be a very large representation of a young Native girl, in full colorful Native ceremonial dance regalia.
