I’ve told you about the Sunday Farmer’s Market at JCFL before I just received an email telling me that this Sunday’s bazaar focuses on the culture of Burundi and that seems like something I should tell you about.
Visitors to this week’s Farmer’s Market & Bazaar will have a unique opportunity to learn about the culture of Burundi, the African nation that was formerly home to many refugees now living in Louisville. The Burundi Community of Kentucky will be hosting this week’s Heritage Sunday.
The number of immigrant and refugee microentrepreneurs selling their wares at the Multicultural Bazaar continues to grow and includes a Cuban who makes macramé and bead jewelry, a Somali woman selling fabrics and doing Henna tattoos, a Congolese man who imports crafts from his native village to help support his former neighbors struggling to survive in the war-torn country, …
This week we will also have a visitor from Rwanda selling arts and crafts.
The farmer’s market also features a variety of locally-grown fresh produce, flowers and some home canned items.
We encourage you to stop by this Sunday, learn more about Burundi, and support our microenterprise clients as well as local farmers.
Open 12-4 this Sunday – corner of Dutchmans and Cannons Lanes
