(November 26th) and Small Business Saturday (November 27th) and EVERY weekend up until Christmas Eve for all your shopping needs. 

There will also be live entertainment, pictures with Santa, family photos, food vendors plus crafts for kids and so much more.  

As you begin to shop for your holiday gifts, we invite you to stop by and support Black-owned businesses who have a large array of products and services from bath & body, clothing, handcrafted jewelry, artwork, and fresh baked goods just to name a few of the products available.   

MELANnaire Marketplace founder Nachand Trabue says “Finally, a place we can depend on to shop during the holidays.  Avoid large traffic jams and support local businesses.  That’s a win-win for the community and your dollars go right back into the community.  Come shop with local Black-owned businesses.  If you would like to be a vendor, we would love to have you just contact us at blackbusinessesmatter502@gmail.com.”
