Kigali Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market (Kigalifaam) is an impact entrepreneurship created to bring together farmers and artisans operating in Rwanda, and recently from other African countries, with the goal of bridging the gap between producers and consumers. It’s the first and consistent market of its kind in Rwanda and has been in operation since June 2017
Our markets provide a direct connection to farms, nurseries, bakeries, meat and seafood providers, cheese makers, specialty food producers, crafters and artisans.
Kigalifaam operates a market that contributes to the success of local artisans, food growers and producers and creates vibrant community gatherings.
The success for our vendors is our primary objective. Listening and learning from vendors and shoppers produces outstanding farmers markets where vendors prosper and communities thrive. We are a family friendly space where consumers can shop and eat in a relaxed atmosphere.
We also have an international section whereby vendors from other African countries promoting the #buylocalsupportlocal initiative can join us and expand their brands in Rwanda. Some of the vendors who’ve joined us intermittently so far have come from Kenya, Uganda, Burundi, DRC, Cote d’Ivoire, Cameroon, Zimbabwe and Ghana
We currently have close to 500 members, for both the Kigali and Mombasa markets, and if you would like to be part of this growing community, click here
The Kigali market happens the 1st Sat of each month other than January and April while the Mombasa market happens every 2 months starting April. Check our market schedule here
