Support Hampton’s Black-owned Businesses

In August 1619, the first enslaved Africans landed at Old Point Comfort. Since then, the history of the first Africans lives on through Hampton’s heritage, residents, and business owners.  

August is also National Black Business Month and we want to highlight the Black-owned businesses in Hampton. With a wide array of culinary options, shopping, and places to stay, there are many businesses for you to support in Hampton all year round.

After you are fueled from your meal, head over to Downtown Hampton for some shopping. If you are looking to bring home a fun souvenir, or gift for someone back home, there are many options. 

Worn and Homespun sells fun and trendy vintage clothing, while Less Than has products for living a more sustainable and eco-friendly life. Housed inside of Less Than is Hampton Roads’ first dry bottle shop, Ceremony, which is focused on curating non-alcoholic wines, spirits, beers, bitters, mixers, and mocktails.
