Our Story

A message from Parisa Morris, the founder of BIDE Market and Chicago's first sustainable, luxury skincare line, TOWN & ANCHOR:

I’ve been a part of a lot of markets and it has always been something that I really enjoyed. But I would notice the waste, the unnecessary plastic, the lack of curation for brands sharing the same values and mission, and wondered, “could there be a better way?” A way to source brands who create luxury, long lasting products or services that are not just in it for the business aspect, but also to be a part of the much needed movement we need as a society--The Sustainable Movement.

And so BIDE Market was born the summer of 2019. With BIDE, I wanted to create a shopping experience for both the consumer and vendor to truly connect. Sustainability is a crucial component of TOWN & ANCHOR’s core brand ethos. BIDE offers consumers the comfort of knowing all brands are creating a positive impact on the world and I hope it creates a community of likeminded individuals who are passionate about the same things.

BIDE Market is a fully sustainable, plastic-free, vegan, and cruelty-free shopping experience that will take place seasonally. If you’re a sustainable brand that would like to take participate, let us know! We’re looking for vendors and sponsors who are making intentional choices, creating plastic-free and vegan products, and are passionate in conscious consumerism.
