Since its inception, the business has been operated from Somerdale, New Jersey – because of its proximity to New York with its large base of African suppliers. Being in New Jersey has allowed us to supply African products with much lower overhead costs than from a warehouse in Manhattan.
*(UPDATE: We have relocated, since December 2016, to Haddonfield, New Jersey!)
Today, there are two(2) people at our home office; and about 100 different people from Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States, who travel back and forth for/with new products. We also estimate that there are over 1,000 different people in Africa who make the products in their own communities; and, in their own way. African Marketplace began in January of 2010. Some of our people have been involved with African goods and trade for even longer.
*We Accept ONLINE/FAX-to-EMAIL/PHONE/MAIL–ORDER Orders — ONLY (NO WALK–IN‘s)!!!
The African–Marketplace helps people like you succeed faster and easier by marketing African products. You can also own the most enriching and fun business anywhere with these African creations.
