Our Story

Origins of Yam

Our story starts off like any other. Just like many of the businesses you will find here. The family that we have built started with a dream. A yearning to find a path toward freedom. That calling led us to create something of our own. Something that we could build in our own image. Something that would stand the test of time and be our gift to the world. Something that we could be proud of and that could lift others as we lift ourselves. That something became YAM.

Our Mission

At YAM our mission is to create a hub for growth positivity and creation. YAM is much more than a marketplace. Here businesses grow. Here intellect is fed. Here we connect you to the products you’ve been looking for. Our mission is successful when you leave our site better than when you log on.

Vision

Our vision is to create a premier destination for minority-owned quality and exclusive brands, where customers can shop with confidence and pride. We believe that by providing a platform for these underrepresented brands to thrive, we can offer a unique shopping experience and also make a positive impact in the world. Our ultimate goal is to be the go-to source for high-end products that reflect the diversity and creativity of the global community.
