Top 100 Bronx Leaders: Marco Shalma
We are so excited to announce that our Founder Marco Shalma is listed in the top 100 leaders of the Bronx alongside household names like AOC! Without Shalma, who would host the largest flea market uptown OR the two best night markets EVER??
The article puts it perfectly “The Bronx Night Market launched by entrepreneur Marco Shalma has become a major destination for New York City foodies, gathering local food vendors and musicians to Fordham Plaza over the course of several months each year. The culinary festival was the only local open-air market that operated last year during the COVID-19 pandemic, though its success was hampered by safety restrictions. However, with wider-scale reopening, the market food fair has been energized with new interest just as it celebrates its fourth anniversary.”
Shalma accepts his placement humbly, saying in response, “It is an incredible honor to be recognized, but I have to give props to the amazing team, our relentless partners, and to the support of the Bronx community for this accomplishment.”
To support our Bronx community, please check out Bronx Night Market every Saturday and Fordham Flea every Sunday at Fordham Plaza, The Bronx from 12-7 pm.
