What began as a way to help local businesses survive the COVID-19 pandemic has turned into a weekend tradition in Barrio Logan. Every Saturday from 12 to 6 pm, local clothing, jewelry and food vendors set up shop on Logan Ave. near Chicano Park for Walk the Block. Brick-and-mortar shops also open their doors for passersby looking to purchase art, home décor and more from local businesses.
Walk the Block is the result of local business owners coming together to help their community thrive. Committee meetings are held and attended by nearly all participants of Walk the Block in order to keep the newfound tradition alive. And it’s not just storefronts that benefit from Walk the Block. Smaller vendors who may be unable to afford a permanent retail location now have the chance to share their art and goods with the community, and gain exposure for their businesses.
