MELANnaire Marketplace holiday market celebrates the history and culture of Kwanzaa

(Louisville, KY) The MELANnaire Marketplace holiday market celebrates Kwanzaa.  Starting December 26th Kwanzaa is a time to celebrate the African American culture.  The holiday market welcomes guests into the storefront to celebrate, educate and recognize the rich history and highlight the seven principles.   

In support of their recent crowdfunding campaign presented by Fund Black Founders and sponsored by Metro United Way, their campaign ends on January 2nd or when the $25,000 goal is met.

Nachand Trabue, founder of MELANnaire Marketplace says, “We have had a great holiday season at the mall.  So, many people have visited and purchased products from our businesses, and we cannot thank you enough for your support.  It only makes sense to end our time at the mall as well close out the year and by celebrating Kwanzaa. We anticipate a big year ahead and we want you to please continue to support us.” 

The MELANnaire Marketplace Holiday Market will be open until January 2, 2024.  Our store hours are open on the same schedule as Mall St. Matthews. The MELANnaire marketplace will be hosting post-holiday sales on 100’s of items.

The marketplace is located near the entrance of El Nopal and Women’s Dillards on the backside of the mall.
