TeteAnle Market & Trade Show debuts in Downtown Little Haiti
Miami, Fla. — The #TetAnle Market & Trade Show is the third installment of shopping and fair experiences at the historic Caribbean Marketplace in Little Haiti. The market will debut May 6, just in time for Haitian History Month.
“We’re inviting everyone to come out and spend $18.04 of their purchasing power to help Little Haiti’s Entrepreneurs survive gentrification,” Martin Jean-Baptiste, the organizer of the #TetAnle Market & Trade Show, said.
The market day is to open to all Little Haiti’s businesses, and it celebrate Haiti’s contributions to the free word before trade laws crippled the Haitian economy. Guests can look forward to Haitian food, art, crafts and entertainment, as well as economic and finance workshops and speakers.
It’s about learning from history and supporting the financial independence of Haitian establishments,” Jean Baptiste said.
The themed market day experiences are a part of a greater initiative to revive the building known as the Caribbean Marketplace. After closing due to structural and financial issues, a newly renovated building reopened in 2014; and it is now one of the focal points of Downtown Little Haiti.
Abraham Metellus, the LHCC manager, says that the community can look forward to more monthly programming and events at the Caribbean Marketplace.
The #TetAnle Market & Trade Show will be held every first Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Interested parties can learn more, including vendor details, here. For information about all events at the Caribbean Marketplace, visit the dedicated page here.
