Mankato Moms Blog: A lot of people know Union Market as the new home of Sun Moon Yoga…but what else do we need to know about this space?
Union Market is a brick & mortar that houses a ton of small businesses, mostly based here in Mankato. Part marketplace, part yoga and soon-to-be part salon! Our vendors in the marketplace include those who offer apparel and accessories, wellness products such as CBD, and special home decor items such as upcycled furniture, a wide range of wall art, sustainable candles, and personalized glasses and mugs. And yes, we have a beautiful space for Sun Moon Yoga, one of our cornerstones. We will be building out this fall for The Rose Room Salon to call Union Market “home.” We’re so excited to be a trio of goodness for the senses and soul!
MMB: Union Market is a new and different concept in Mankato, where did the idea come from for this type of retail space?
It’s hard to put into words because people often tell us its an innovative concept, but really it’s a throwback to the traditional marketplace. “I love the vibe of this place” is what we get a lot – and it’s exactly what we were going for. Creating a welcoming vibe where community is cultivated has been our foundation not only for our visitors – but for our vendors. We’re cleverly working together to make shopping a way less stressful experience. We have a ping pong table, a skateboard and a lounge for those who want to play or chill while they wait. Plus, we have atelier tables in the back where you can occasionally catch one of our designers working on something new. We’re happy to continue to create a place that provides both a sense of calm and inspiration, a place that’s carefully curated yet welcoming for all within our city.
We are at 615 South Front Street in Mankato. Regular hours for the market are Thursday and Friday 12-6 & Saturday 10-4. As we grow, so will our hours of operation! Sun Moon Yoga has their own hours.
Here is a list of our current vendors – and we are currently accepting applications for a few more vendors!
