Holiday Popup Market at Church of the Heavenly Rest

Church of the Heavenly Rest has partnered with Union Settlement on initiatives that support disconnected youth, addresses food insecurity and assists minority-owned small businesses. They have connected our East Harlem restaurants to their pantry program, “granted” three East Harlem restaurants weekly meal preparation through their Nourishing Neighbors initiative, and now their congregation continues their commitment to diversity and equity with a holiday market, featuring East Harlem small business merchants. Held at Darlington Hall, 2 East 90th Street on December 4th, here are some of the East Harlem merchants who will be there:

Chiwara Naturals
Pure Body care inspired by Mother Nature. In the quest for self-preservation, as well as seeking the well-being of family and friends, I found out my passion for natural, holistic, sustainable ways of healing, using products from Mother Earth’s bounty. Traditional ancestral medicine and healing which include the use of herbs, teas and other healing substances has been a blessing. to my process. From the agricultural Bambara people of West Africa to the Arawak of the Caribbean, I source inspiration and information regarding wholesome co-existence with life and the universe. My dream is to pass on this cycle of communal knowledge of healing and regeneration to younger generations, creating an intergenerational ecosystem of connectedness. We are the earth, and the Earth is us.
