About Us

Your Neighborhood
Cannabis Dispensary

Market 96 was born out of a desire to create a cannabis shopping experience like visiting your neighborhood market. It was founded by the Blounts&Moore team, a collaboration of nine highly accomplished women partnering with other like-minded, socially conscious entrepreneurs. Our Market 96 name pays tribute to the first state-level cannabis legalization in the United States in 1996 and honors the cannabis experience of today.

At Market 96 our unwavering commitment is to make everyone who steps into our neighborhood dispensary feel welcome, comfortable, and valued in their cannabis journey.

Creating an experience of genuine hospitality, our team members take the time to listen, put our customers at ease, and understand their preferences. They are an approachable, trusted resource to help each customer navigate our diverse selection of high-quality products.

Market 96 is a familiar space. Our goal is to create a community where neighbors become friends and to have a positive impact that reaches beyond our doors.

Our Teams



General Manager

A Fox Valley area native and former student-athlete, I am thrilled to lead Market 96 in my hometown. With a background in national brand retail management, I bring a blend of intelligence, grace, and good humor to enhance the cannabis retail experience at Market 96. My journey from the retail sector to cannabis focuses on building community engagement and delivering educational initiatives to demystify cannabis and highlight its benefits.


Assistant General Manager

Starting as a budtender, I devoted myself to mastering cannabis knowledge to educate and empower those around me. Now as a leader, I guide budtenders to foster community understanding and eradicate cannabis stigma. An Aurora native, I am passionate about uniting diverse individuals through education on the various benefits and consumption methods of cannabis.



General Manager

Leveraging my background in wireless retail management and the legacy cannabis market, I developed key skills that facilitated my swift transition to the legalized cannabis industry. My commitment to social equity and reducing stigma, combined with a deep market understanding, allowed me to quickly become General Manager of a new dispensary within nine months.
