It all started with a lifestyle boutique called Salam Shop in 2014. The shop was located in Mississauga, Ontario and was visited from people all over the world looking for the best Muslim lifestyle brands. The goal? To spread the love & beauty of Islam. Salam Shop was Sudduf’s baby.
Fast forward to 2016: Sudduf has real babies! 3 to be exact! Triplets! Salam Shop closes and Sudduf takes a break.
Ramadan 2018: Sudduf held the first Ramadan Market at Spacebar Coworking in Mississauga. It’s a sold out event with huge line ups and an inspirational feel. It’s clear that our community needs a bigger and better Ramadan Market.
Ramadan 2019: For the first time in history, Ramadan was celebrated at a shopping centre in Canada - not just any shopping centre, but the largest mall in Canada! Square One hosted Ramadan Market to another sold out crowd. The event was the talk of the town and attendees and vendors from all over North America are in attendance. The vendors were hand picked not just for having the best products in the biz, but for the way they conduct their business and for their vision.
Our team spent hours upon hours on every little detail of the market. We included a nursing room and a quiet space. We fed and hydrated our vendors during their long sales days. We included a spiritual space for prayers and moments of reflection.
Eid ul Fitr 2019: Holt Renfrew at Square One hosted Eid for the first time in the history of the Selfridges Group. Guests were pampered with complimentary henna and gift wrapping, complete with “Happy Eid” ribbon.
We rebranded after our Holt Renfrew event to better encompass what we are all about:
Muslim Market Co provides you with elevated retail experiences that connect you with the love & beauty of Islam.
Eid ul Adha 2019: The Eid ul Adha market will be held in the main concourse of Square One shopping centre in Mississauga from August 8th to 11th 2019. We are expecting over 25k visitors! We cannot believe that this year we will have celebrate all of our Islamic holidays at the biggest mall in Canada. Make dua for this trend to continue so that our children grow up seeing themselves and their celebrations represented as part of the larger community, inshallah.
This is why we do what we do:
We do this for the smiles on the faces of your children.
We do this to bring joy in the hearts of Canadian Muslims.
We do this for the sense of community.
We do this to show the world that Islam is beautiful and full of love.
We do this for Allah.
