About Us

Diaspora

After years of continuously experiencing and witnessing family and friends struggle to source everyday Haitians goods and services, mostly retrieving items from recent visitors of Haiti or by physically going to primary Haitian American communities where these items are in abundance, the founders of the marketplace realized that there’s plenty of desire and appreciation for Haitian gifts and products, and that at all times, these items should be accessible in an easier and modern fashion
