Every Saturday morning you have the opportunity to enjoy the best local food and home made delicacies at Marshe di Playa. The local market also offers great craftwork such as goat leather products, natural and sustainable products, art, plants and fresh produce.
The goal is to stimulate small business initiatives amongst the local population of Bonaire. Research shows that small businesses are the backbone of the economy for many countries in the Caribbean. Boneiru Duradero is offering locals the opportunity to create additional income by selling products or services at Marshe di Playa.
Being a Boneiru Duradero project Marshe di Playa strives to be as sustainable as possible. Vendors will not be allowed to hand out plastic bags and are requested to use re-usable packaging materials and cutlery.
All investments in materials, promotion and coordination are financed through local organization Boneiru Duradero, which receives its support from the World Wildlife Fund. The role of Boneiru Duradero is to facilitate and support so that the local population can prosper. The pilot will end in June 2016, but Marshe di Playa should continue functioning. There will be interim evaluations in close collaboration with vendors to steer the market in the right direction towards continuity and success!
This market is held on the parkinglot across the street from Warehouse from 9am till 1pm!
