MEET OUR FOUNDER

The Geek and Grub Monthly Market was founded in April of 2021 in Raleigh, NC by owner, Erin Dunphy Dean. 

Erin Dunphy Dean is no stranger to the world of event planning, having planned/hosted over 500+ events in the Triangle over the span of 15 years. Before her event planning days she worked in the legal and television industries. (Fun Fact: She once got to hold cue cards for Matt Damon.)

The Geek and Grub Market was created during the age of Covid, to provide a safe, outdoor platform that brings together geeky minded customers and vendors. 


All Geek & Grub Markets are free to the public and feature 30+ Geeky Vendors, 2+ Food Trucks, Giant Games, Music and Fun, Geek-Themed Activities.
