The Buffalo Market Video Recap
Every so often, there comes an event that hits the pocket of your city’s culture. One that encapsulates all the things that make your city unique and remarkable.
The Buffalo Market , organized by Hector Garcia, was an event that featured some of Houston’s most remarkable artisan businesses. Shoe vendors, grooming products, tasty local rum and beer, and much more. Not to mention, they had an old fashioned bar with an amazing local bartender (Erin Faye) and a friendly, passionate barista serving up great coffee.
We were excited to check out The Buffalo Market. The rainy, gloomy weather couldn’t hold us back. We arrived ready to capture the essence behind this unique event. Camera ready. Let’s go!
As we were walking in, we could hear the music vibrating from the venue, which by the way, is a really cool, gritty art gallery. I’m not sure how often they host events, but it’s definitely a venue that exudes dope creative energy.
Back to the market, Orlando and I had a great time meeting all the vendors and documenting their business story. As a creative, I love meeting other creative entrepreneurs who are passionate about their craft and dedicated to giving their customers exceptional products and service. Boom! That’s what I’m talking about.
It was fun and beyond inspiring to be around so many talented, passionate local business owners. Shout out and special thanks to all the vendors that allowed us to put them on the spot (Sorry guys) but you all did a fantastic job sharing your story with us.
After we finished shooting all the footage, we took a short break to relax and enjoy an old fashioned. A RUM old fashioned (provided by Grateful Dane Distillery) sweetened by some tasty simple syrup by Statesman Simple Syrup, which was nicely stirred by a great local bartender. Shout out to Erin. She was working it that night! Great job!
The event was a success. We enjoyed capturing footage, although, we wish we could have recorded more footage outside. Next time! But, the whole vibe was legit and I look forward to the next one.
Special thanks and shout out to my dude, Hector Garcia, for putting together such a great event! Hector is always giving back to the community and curates these events for the sole purpose of supporting local businesses. Much respect to you, Hector and all the volunteers who made this event special.
