Vendedy is the first social network connecting global travelers to street markets. Founded by a Haitian American Forbes30Under30 Entrepreneur, Vendedy aims to digitize access to the $10 trillion dollar street market economy and make it accessible to all. As a result, we have been called many things depending on who you talk to. Travelers call us the “Yelp” for street markets and consumers say we are the “Birchbox” for street market products. Whatever the association, Vendedy has won numerous awards for inspiring unconventional street experiences from around the world!
