Alma Market is an online store where visitors can shop Illini-owned businesses and support their favorite local Urbana-Champaign retailers. The site is currently in development, with our pilot program launching early 2022.
ALMA MARKET IS COMING!
The University of Illinois is creating a pilot program for the Alma Market, an online marketplace that allows University of Illinois alumni to purchase goods from current and former U of I students, as well as from businesses in the Urbana-Champaign area. We’re asking potential vendors such as yourself to opt in to the program as we build it, so you can stay updated as we get closer to launch. We anticipate the pilot launching in early 2022—and we’re excited for you to join us!
Shop for merchandise created by U of I Alumni in a wide range of categories, including:
- Live events
- Memorabilia & collectibles
