One of the best kept secrets about Pybus Public Market is its organizational structure. Most people don’t realize that Pybus Market is a 501c(3) non-profit. While each of our merchants are for-profit businesses, the overarching entity that governs the Market is a non-profit. We think that gives us several advantages. First, it means a donation made by the community to Pybus Market Charitable Foundation is tax deductible. Second, our non-profit status means that we engage in charitable activities that benefit the community. Third, it acts as a reminder that we were created by the community, for the community. Pybus Market is governed by a 17-person board of directors representing a cross section of the community.
