SUPPORT NEW MOMS AT DOSE MARKET THIS MOTHER'S DAY
GET A DOSE OF SPRING DELIGHT WITH 80 OF THE BEST SMALL BUSINESSES
Call it a tradition: Sunday, May 14th marks the 6th annual Mother's Day Dose Market. Dose, making and giving back to the Chicago community since 2011, is the spot to hit to celebrate the new Spring season alongside moms and makers of every stripe. Popping up Mother's Day from 10a.m. to 4p.m. at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan), guests will experience the fresh, the organic and the beautiful from 80 makers, artists and exceptional small businesses. Shop while giving back to support those in need of critical support: twenty-five percent of all ticket sales go directly to New Moms, a veteran Chicago nonprofit working with young, single mothers to provide hope, holistic care and stability, including homes and job training. It's the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon: all the good stuff in one spot. Get ready to sip, see, shop, snack and support!

Founder April Francis has meticulously curated 57 Dose Markets since 2011, earning critical acclaim, influencing the way Chicagoans shop locally, and helping the best small businesses make a big splash in the Chicago market and beyond. Her dedication to giving back is evident in the number of people she has brought to Dose over the years, mindful consumers supporting local and small businesses with their Dose Market purchases. Additionally, Francis is keen on supporting local causes like New Moms.
"With the mission of enabling, empowering, equipping, and encouraging new mothers, we are thrilled to be supporting such a great cause at this year's Mother's Day Dose" said Francis. "It's the perfect organization for Mother's Day and we look forward to welcoming moms, daughters, friends and families for this Springtime tradition."
Spanning the open, industrial space at Morgan Manufacturing, the marketplace will be filled with businesses selling exceptional products across all categories, everything made with love, integrity and honesty. The complete lineup of participating Spring Dosers will be released next week.
