“Peachy Pop-Ups began with the desire to build a community of locally-owned businesses by hosting markets, business fairs and expos, networking mixers and much more. Our joy comes from seeing other businesses THRIVE through community, connection and commerce. Currently, we are the host for the Milagro Market in Carmichael and hope to plan more family-friendly events locally! We love to spotlight kid-preneurs at our events and even offer some KID-OWNED business fairs. We are working on building a non-profit so kids who want to be businesses owners can learn the dynamics and behind the scenes of running a business. We will be offering workshops on marketing, startup bookkeeping, social media, inventory management, payment processing, and more! We're excited to continue to build the community in Carmichael and the surrounding area. Thank you so much for stopping by, reading about our mission and submitting your vote. We will see you at an event soon!
