Our goal is to champion island businesses owned by Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color. The businesses below were submitted to us through social media as well as in person, however, if your business is listed and you feel that it shouldn’t be, or you are a business owner of color and do not yet see your business listed, please let us know so that we can update it appropriately. We continue to strive to amplify melanated voices and motivate change in the Nantucket community. Please join us in these efforts and support these businesses.
