Small and Home-Based Business Marketplace

FBID and the Fortuna Chamber of Commerce worked together through the MOU to bring the Business Marketplace to the Fortuna River Lodge on March 18, 2023 from 10am-3pm. The marketplace provides small businesses, of five employees or less, and home-based businesses, the opportunity to showcase their products and services to the public. Fortuna businesses that are not applying as vendors feel free to attend as a consumer to support our community, it is free to the public to come and shop and meet the vendors. There will be door prizes handed out every hour (must be present to win).
