The core mission of The African Village Cultural District is community-based economic development. The market will lower barriers for diverse entrepreneurs and create a launch pad for startup and early-stage businesses.

The African Village Cultural District will provide space for commercial kitchens and workforce training focused on building a stronger regional food system.

Finally,  The African Village Cultural District will become a cherished community gathering space with art, music, events, classes, and a range of activities that bring the City and West Louisville together.
