Molly Alvarado founded La Paloma Tacoma, an outdoor street market, with the mission to create a sustainable creative community space that is inclusive, safe, innovative, and accessible for all. As an Indigenous woman, she is committed to disallowing any cultural appropriation at the market. La Paloma Tacoma prioritizes submissions from historically excluded & marginalized identities and is a welcoming space for allies as well. Molly’s committed to offering space free of charge to all vendors to bring the creative community together and kids are always approved to vend as long as a supervising parent accompanies them. 

Her goal is to uplift, inspire, and promote unique and hardworking artisans, upcyclers, thrifters, and creative small-business owners.
