November 12, 1993 – The Village Traders Shop Opens in Epcot

“Discover an open-air marketplace featuring African-themed musical instruments, wood carvings and soapstone sculptures.”

On November 12, 1993, the Village Traders specialty shop opened in Epcot’s World Showcase area. This store is the only representation of Africa within the World Showcase; though talks and potential plans for an African Pavilion have taken place, nothing further than this store has come to fruition. The space is an open-air market and features several African-themed pieces of merchandise.
