FAIR@44 International Market
The Fair@44 is a community-activated lot located in City Heights at 4350 El Cajon Boulevard. It houses Dojo Café and an International Marketplace of start-up entrepreneurs from the Mid-City’s neighborhoods and our immigrant and refugee communities. The Boulevard BIA works with the IRC to give new small business owners a place to sell their products and interact with the community and new customers. Most of these businesses are women-, minority-owned businesses from immigrant communities.
Dojo Café Hours: Tuesday through Sunday (8am to 4pm)
