Virtual Wabanaki Market
Targeted to support small business and micro-enterprise, this initiative will build the infrastructure to get Maine Native-made products from the producer directly to the consumer, maximizing the income for these cottage industries. FDDC will identify emerging businesses and enterprise opportunities to develop a diverse product line for the virtual market. There are a significant number of existing Native crafts people and small business owners within the State of Maine. There are an undetermined, but significant number of Wabanaki businesses, all of whom would benefit from access to a well-established, diverse market to sell their products. With established markets and distributors for Maine Native products, we anticipate growth opportunities for emerging entrepreneurs in home décor, clothing, cultural performance, food products, beauty products, jewelry, art, and eco-tourism, to name a few.
