What's In A Name
Did you know that Anara gets its name from the pomegranate?
Anara means pomegranate flower and the flower's petals create a beautiful 8 point star. Depending how you cut open your fruit, you can also see a similar star shape inside. We used these shapes as an inspiration to create our logo and branding.
The closely packed seeds reminded us of our supporting community, and the intersections of the star points inside the fruit reminds us that no matter where you come from or start from, when we come together we can create something yummy and fruitful.
Anara’s mission is to provide an online marketplace connecting buyers and sellers in a social and transparent exchange. We’re building a network where you connect to your community, and those connections foster economic opportunity. We’re here because small businesses are the backbone of our local and global communities.
Who We Serve
