Kingston Grandmother Connection’s Market for Africa
On Saturday, November 4th, the Kingston Grandmother Connection invites you to a vibrant celebration of African culture, craftsmanship, and community at the renowned Market for Africa. Set in the scenic Crossroads United Church, this market, now in its 14th year, promises a unique shopping experience spanning three rooms filled with a delightful array of goods. From authentic African crafts and baskets, exquisite Sandglass Creations, festive Christmas crafts and cards, to pre-loved jewelry, ladies’ winter wear, and mouth-watering baked goods—there’s truly something for everyone. And as you navigate this enchanting marketplace, remember to pause and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, complemented by delectable sweet treats.
But the Market for Africa isn’t just about shopping—it’s about making a difference. With free admission, every purchase you make echoes far beyond the walls of Crossroads United Church. Each transaction is a step towards a brighter future for African grandmothers and their families, many of whom have been profoundly affected by the AIDS pandemic and numerous other challenges. By supporting this market, you are directly contributing to the pivotal initiatives of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign and Help Lesotho. So, mark your calendars, and let’s “shop with purpose,” fostering change, one purchase at a time.
