Free Market Square is a temporary outdoor shopping and live entertainment market centrally located in Houston's Historic Third Ward.

From the newly renovated Emancipation Park to the newly renamed Emancipation Avenue - Free Market Square is here to add to the vibrancy and energy of strength and empowerment in Third Ward. We invite you to join us during our weekend concerts and vendor markets as we recreate the legacy that once belonged to the area as a thriving Black business district in Houston. Free Market Square is a free and family-friendly event curated in a space that encourages community, economic development, and growth.

Continue to follow the market at and on Instagram as they provide updates for our Free Market Square Live weekend kick-off happening Friday, June 16th from 4pm-8pm and Saturday, June 17th from 12pm-8pm
