A new market and coworking space in downtown Raleigh is giving women entrepreneurs the opportunity to expand their businesses and be part of helping women around the globe.

At The Flourish Market, every product sold has a bigger purpose. Information cards that come with each purchase tell shoppers who they’re supporting. One card under a necklace, for example, has “the name of the woman who made the necklace in India who has been rescued from sex trafficking,” CEO and founder Emily Sexton said.

Sexton used a delivery truck to start the “do good” boutique concept in 2015, introducing unique products from around the world to local “cause conscious” women.
