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.
As our guest, we want you to feel welcome and be glad you came the minute you walk through the door. You matter and we always appreciate you making the choice to shop with us.
We’re committed to making every visit a great experience. Our advisors will meet you where you are in your cannabis journey and offer a supportive, safe space where everyone feels at ease and valued.
Our team makes your neighborhood dispensary a community. We want it to be a place rooted in kindness where everyone feels respected, supported, valued and proud to be part of the team.
