About 60 local manufacturers and Art and Craft producers will come together to put on another “Buy Dominica” event.
The event is geared at promoting the sale of local products and raising awareness of products manufactured locally.
President of the Dominica Manufacturers Association and one of the organizers of the event, Saverin McKenzie, said the ‘Buy Dominica Carnival Extravaganza’ is a follow up of the first event held last Christmas.
He emphasized that the event is a marketplace for people to purchase local goods.
“We want to emphasize that it is not an expo it is a marketplace for people to come and buy,” he stressed.
McKenzie told Dominica News Online that the eventual objective of the “Buy Dominica” series is to set up a permanent supermarket-type area which will give customers the opportunity purchase locally made products at any time.
The Buy Dominica Carnival Extravaganza will be held from Wednesday 6th February, 2013 to Wednesday 13th, 2013 at the Roseau Market.
Various products including Kalinago craft, locally made liquers and fruit drinks among others, will be on sale at the event.
