Our monthly Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market started in June 2017 with 7 vendors. Currently, we have over 250 SMEs in our database that interchange attendance each month. The markets are a platform for #madeinrwanda and #madeinafrica SMEs to showcase their products and engage directly with the community.
We started by hosting the events each month in various restaurants and community spaces. This helped us gain traction within the community and with SMEs. As we grew, we started looking for a more fixed location to hold the markets
In 2018, we got into a wonderful partnership with Kigali Serena Hotel making it our home till 2020, just before Covid. This partnership helped us secure more footfall to the markets each month, creating a more stable and sustainable business model.
We were then able to start a similar market in Kenya in 2019 at the Mombasa Serena Hotel
Currently, we hold our markets in Kigali Serena Hotel, every first Sat of each month
