Business Mercado was this past Saturday at the Abilene civic center. What I expected was a very subdued and quite affair. Was I surprised when I walked into the civic center and was greeted with the wonderful sounds of a Mariachi band. Mariachi Alma Mexicana set the mood and made me feel like I was in a real Mercado (Market) in Mexico. The air was filled with sound and the smell of fresh tamales, compliments of our local United Super Markets. This Free to the public event was attended by people of all walks of life and all ages. One thing we all had in common, was that, when the Mariachi Alma Mexicana played we all stopped to listen, sing along, danced or swayed to the beat of the music. Oh and yes there were over one hundred businesses represented and y es they were talking business and how they could better serve us.

Business Mercado (Market) is an annual event where local business products and services come together to bridge a relationship with the Hispanic consumer and Hispanic business owners. It is open to all businesses interested in connecting with the Hispanic market. Nearly every business there handed out either their product or information on their products and or services. First Financial Bank and W.T.U. the main sponsors and were available to offer assistance and advise to any enterprising individual who might want to start a business. However the highlight for me was the Mariachi band from San Angelo, they are awesome. I found one of their videos on the web, check it out and tell me what you think.
