Faces of the Market – Jajja Wellness  

If you were at the market, or tuned in to Jazz 88 for Bluegrass Saturday morning this past week, you may have caught Henry Kisitu, of Jajja Wellness. In case you missed it – here’s our own interview with Henry for our Faces of the Market feature.

Q: What is your business?
“The business is Jajja Wellness. Jajja means ‘run by the grandparents’. The business is inspired by my grandmother who passed away… so we started making juice. These ingredients have been in our family [in Uganda] for a while and we are trying to bring it back and mix it with the popular stuff and superfoods. It’s a great product!”

Q: How long have you been at Midtown?
“This is our second season.”

Q: What do you love about Midtown?
“It’s pretty close to the road and people can come and see. And I like the people. I love markets in general because I can meet different people and introduce myself and introduce the juices.”

Q: Fun Fact?
“When we started I didn’t know how it was going to go and I just tried to bring the juice to the people at Thanksgiving. Everybody yelled, ‘Put it in a bottle! Put it in a bottle!” So that’s how it started. It was fun because people came together and they started creating websites for me…”

Q: What are you looking forward to most about this market season?”
“The biggest goal this season for us is to introduce ourselves to the market and see if we are able to connect with the people because that’s what we want.. And the juices are very very medicinal!”

We love Jajja Wellness and are so pleased to be able to host them this season at Moon Palace Books! Come visit on Saturdays from 8am-1pm to find them, and try for yourself.
