Mary Blackford was inspired to create Market 7 while on a teaching trip to Ghana, where she saw firsthand how integral community markets were to underserved residents. In 2017, she began hosting pop-up markets in Ward 7 to prop up Black retailers and urban farmers before the Neighborhood Development Group offered her a dedicated space at its Benning Market development. In July, Essence awarded Blackford $150,000 to jump-start Market 7 as part of the magazine’s “Build Your Legacy” competition with Pine-Sol. - Washington Post, September 2020
