Vendor Spotlight: Atelier Prelude + Black Market Group + Minkara

At Urban Air market, we celebrate the focal point of sustainability through various talented vendors. We have three particular Vendor Ambassadors who we feel truly lead by example. To show our appreciation for their continued excellence, we wanted to share their stories and highlight their missions and contributions towards a social good.

The first of our Vendor Ambassadors is Atelier Prelude, a brand committed to sourcing the world’s softest, natural fabrics with a mission to promote sustainable and ethical fashion. Beginning in 2015, the San Franciscan label creates fashionable and timeless garments in the current era of “fast fashion”, where low-quality textiles are produced in bulk and designed to be disposed of in a relatively short period. To Atelier Prelude, quality clothing will always be superior to cheap clothing with respect to texture and comfort; reasonably so, as these are the two factors that are arguably the most important when discussing wearable goods. This brand places great emphasis on sourcing premium materials from around the world to produce beautiful pieces that will last long, feel great, and look amazing. One would not need to look any further than their signature cotton and cashmere to see that they meet sustainability guidelines by being officially certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard.


Our next Vendor Ambassador is The Black Market Group, East Bay based skincare brand delivering beautiful skin through products such as face masks, bar soaps, and moisturizers, all of which are made using natural resources. The brand is able to give back by going against the grain of cosmetics made through conventionally produced methods, which have been known to deposit chemicals such as BHA/BHT into the air and ocean. This is toxic to our environment and strongly contributes towards the death of aquatic species. In light of this fact, Black Market Group utilizes ingredients for their natural health and beauty products that are farmed and manufactured organically to ensure fewer detrimental chemicals are put into the air and water. Through this methodology, the label is able to give back towards consumers while still being mindful of the world we all reside in. Additionally, there are also many benefits of using natural beauty goods. One of their products, traditional African Black Soap, has moisturizing properties, anti-eczema/psoriasis applications, and active ingredients which will work with your skin to decrease redness, irritation, and breakouts.

Finally, we have Teresa Soler, a Los Angeles based jeweler who handcrafts unique, elegant, and lasting accessories under the brand Minkara. The name Minkara is a reference to the Australian Indigenous word for the “Silver Wattle Tree” (also called Mimosa or Acacia Dealbata), and is a tribute to the evolution of her creative process from influences during her time living in Australia. Inspired by nature and various cultures, Minkara utilizes a combination of materials such as Gold, wood, silver, copper, brass, gold, and gemstones gathered from all corners of the world. Minkara is conscious of minimizing the environmental impact of the jewelry making process, choosing to opt-in for the usage of recycled metals, found objects, and resourced remnants. If you are looking to up your personal aesthetic while also retaining cultural, social, and environmental consciousness, see for yourself how Minkara’s minimalist designs result in pieces that are both effortlessly stylish and truly outstanding.

If you are looking to experience the luxurious feel of Atelier Prelude’s curated fabrics, enhance your day/night routine and end up with silky smooth skin through Black Market Group’s cosmetic goods, or simply accessorize and elevate your look through Minkara’s specialty jewelry, then be sure to check out them out at Urban Air Market. You won’t want to miss it!

  • HoneyPot A premium brand of cannabis-infused honey that promotes happiness & health. Made from honey and cannabis crafted by two best friends who live, cultivate, and bee-keep in Hayward.
  • Cosmic View Formulated with science and traditional herbal wisdom, these cannabis products are made with award-winning Sonoma County Tuscan blend cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil. They are formulated by a mother/daughter team inspired to enter the cannabis space after using cannabis to get through cancer.

The path towards wellness through micro-dosing & clean eating

As a life-long, pro-cannabis patient, Liz was diagnosed with Celiac and Hashimoto’s disease over 15 years ago. In her exploration for wellness through cannabis, she found salvation and a new joy for living, and through her studies has accumulated a wealth of knowledge about healthy eating. With over 20 years in the hospitality industry, she has a Nutrition Certification from Precision Nutrition and is a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. In her spare time, Liz spends her days as a Creative Director at a startup in San Francisco as well as working towards her yoga certification later this year. This is a non-consumption educational event.

Creating for a Better Tomorrow


Needless to say our world is changing day to day- and as more and more companies come into creation, there are a special few that strive to help make a change for the better. Vendors who participate at Urban Air Market not only make it a conscious point to take the environment and their communities into consideration, they aim to progress the two in a way that will ensure a better future.

Urban Air Market’s goal is to showcase sustainable design and social conscious vendors in a creative pop-up space for all to enjoy. With so many vendors dedicated to sustainable design, we’d like to highlight some who are working toward larger environmental and societal changes.

Each of these designers will be featured at our upcoming Hayes Valley Urban Air Market show in San Francisco on Sunday, May 1st! RSVP here


Feminine Funk

The owner of Feminine Funk-Nicole Grier wanted to start her own T-shirt brand that would accurately represent “funky” women of all shapes, colors, and sizes. Feminine Funk aims to challenge societal norms of beauty, and offers a product that assists in the inclusion of all types of women. The selection of unique and fun T-shirts will have any women feeling their best and have them strutting their way through life.


No Tox Life

This local family-run business offers handmade body care products using highest quality natural ingredients possible, No Tox Life’s was created to provide, toxic-free vegan body care to help an individual live a cleaner and greener life. Each product is made from 100% natural ingredients that will do no harm to you and especially the environment.

No Tox Life


As a reaction to worsening environmental conditions in Indonesia, Indosole was created in order to help out the country in a very unique and proactive way. Indosole produces incredible shoes out of repurposed tires that would otherwise be left in landfills. The transformative nature of this product is beneficial to many-and is one step in the direction of a more sustainable future for all.



With growing concerns about our endangered animal species, Doalittle found inspiration and a need to help in some way. As their slogan says “Doalittle-Helpalot” by purchasing on of their T-shirts you are helping a greater cause. The proceeds from each purchase are donated to a conservation organization whose efforts go toward the protection of endangered animals in hopes of helping them eventually thrive.

doalittle kids


Banau means “Let’s create” in Nepali. After seeing the reality of Human Trafficking in Nepal, the founders of Banau wanted to help out these individuals in a way that they felt could be most beneficial. In 2015, Banau was started and aims to create jobs and alternatives to human trafficking in a safe way. In addition, 100% of the proceeds made from the jewelry go towards the growth and development of vocational Workshops within the 24 districts around Nepal.

Designer Spotlight: NSEWest Co.

NSEWest Co. is pleased to announce the latest drop of their The LSD Collection — a tribute to San Francisco’s Last Summer Days.
This collection celebrates the unique and eclectic history that defines San Francisco. The City has been a major countercultural hub for decades. From the legendary music scene, to its world-renowned restaurant and beer industry and booming tattoo culture, San Francisco’s identity has always been tied to innovation and challenging the norm.
NSEWest Co.’s vision for Last Summer Days is to preserve and honor the old San Francisco, the city of steep hills, not steep prices, while also celebrating who we are as a city right now. A place that we hope is always full of imagination and idealism, art and community. Click here to read about the brand new line on NSEWest Co.’s blog page. As with all their apparel and accessories, 10% of web proceeds go back to community-based organizations and nonprofits. You can read more about their community focused business model, here.
Whether you’re looking for locally made products, or artistic clothing with a purpose Urban Air Market is the place to find it! Our vendors  focus on sustainable design with a knack for the local community. Be sure to check out NSEWest Co. and a festival of other designers and artists at Urban Air Market: Dogpatch this Sunday from 11am – 6pm at Espirit Park (19th and Minnesota St. SF). Hope to see you all there!

Urban Air Market: Dogpatch

eventbrite_dogpatch_uam (1)


After making its successful round in the East Bay, Urban Air Market returns to the esteemed neighborhood  of Dogpatch in San Francisco! We’re excited to return to a neighborhood we call one of our favorites in SF. The creative history in the neighborhood keeps bringing us back (think the once-booming industrial economy centered in the city’s central waterfront or the awesome nineties when Espirit headquarters was located in Dogpatch — pretty much the epicenter of fashion at that time!)

Urban Air Market: Dogpatch will take place on Sunday, August 16th surrounding  Esprit Park at the intersection of Minnesota and 19th streets from 11  a.m. to 6 p.m. Our one-day street festival will feature 100+ one-of-a-kind  local designers who produce sustainable goods  including apparel, jewelry, and home decor.

We had a chance to catch up with a few Dogpatch residents to find out why they love Urban Air Market:

” I love the unique selection of vendors. These designers produce super high-quality products that are handcrafted, organic or sustainable. It’s great! – Marianna R., 42, homemaker 

“UAM supports the local economy and compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share their revenue with the community by putting it back into the local economy! It’s great Urban Air Market can bring this to our community!” – Trevor W., 32, business professional

“I do my best to be eco-friendly by conserving water and energy, but always wanted to do more. After discovering Urban Air Market I realized I can shop for sustainable products all in one place. I’m doing my part in supporting the green movement and I encourage other to do so too!” – Ashley G., 28, beauty salon owner

We’re excited to enrich the Dogpatch neighborhood once again! In addition to shopping, guests can enjoy acoustic performances by local musicians including:

Musical Line-up:

Diablo Jazz Company | 11am – 12pm

Geist Strings | 12pm – 1pm

PLS Trio | 1pm – 2pm

Foxtail Brigade | 2pm – 3pm

Steve Taylor-Ramirez| 3pm – 4pm

The Willy Roland Band | 4pm – 5pm

Food Truck Line-Up:

Attendees will take home the knowledge required to present and pitch product lines to buyers in a way that maximizes sales potential. Please note:  the vendor workshop is not on the same date as the Dogpatch show. For more information about this vendor workshop, please see:

Urban Air Market: Dogpatch is FREE to attend and will take place at Espirit Park in Dogpatch, SF on the intersection of Minnesota and 19th streets from 11  a.m. to 6 p.m.

About Urban Air Market

For eleven years, Urban Air Market has served the community in support of creative entrepreneurs and independent designers. Not only does Urban Air Market provide a well curated marketplace for small businesses to showcase their products, it directly connects shoppers and taste makers to emerging designers, local art and sustainable products.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is a little over a week away! Don’t worry- Urban Air Market is this Sunday and with our highly curated marketplace of sustainable and locally made goods, you’re sure to find something special to gift to that lovely lady who gave birth to you.

Here are some of our picks…

Leslie Francesca Designs – Amethyst Stalactite Earrings


No mom is quite like the other. Same goes for the natural characteristics of stones. We like the raw, organic feel of Leslie Francesca‘s designs and light up at the thought that each necklace, ring, bracelet, or pair of earrings is one of a kind. So perfectly imperfect.

Foggy Notion – Cardamom & Coffee Body Scrub

foggy notion cardomon

Can’t afford to get mom a day spa get away? Try putting together a gift basket with decadent lotions, serums and scrubs. We love this Fig+Yarrow Cardamom+Coffee Scrub which will be available at the Foggy Notion booth this Sunday. A great way for mom to prep for summer!

Skincare by Feleciai – Body SoapsSkincarebyFeleciai

This one you can add to that gift basket too! Skincare by Feleciai soaps are not only delightfully aromatic, the bars themselves are beautiful. Remind mom how beautiful she is with a sudsy scent that suits her personality and style.

Handloom Nation – Faded Denim Scarf


If you live far away from your mom, give her a gift that will hug her all day long. We like the beautiful handloomed Spring scarves by Handloom Nation. Like denim, this soft and luxurious scarf goes with anything Mom wears. She’ll love the fact that is also contributes to preserving an artform that has been passed down for generations.

Devika’s Art – Poppy Coasters


Bring the Spring into Mom’s home with gorgeous hand painted coasters by Devika Keskar of Devika’s Art. These poppies will make a nice accent to her living room… or her glass of wine.

Fiber Florist – Bouquet


There’s something very sweet about gifting freshly picked flowers, but then they die. Get Mom something she can use over and over again like a Fiber Florist arrangement with a variety of flowers and foliage to choose from.

For those still completely stumped on what to give for Mother’s Day, Get a pre-made gift set any mom would love from Sojourn Box– tasteful and worldly.


Or, for the mom who loves to cook, try a foodie subscription to Saffron + Kumquats. These subscription boxes (your choice of 1, 3 or 5 months) take Mom on a culinary tour around the world.
