Welcome to Panara Imports in Marquette, Michigan

Offering Unique Fashions and Fabulous Finds Since 1991

After a number of years of Mall living, Panara Imports has returned to where it really belongs and where it all originally began 27 years ago at 125 West Washington Street, in Marquette’s historical downtown district. Panara features unique, often handmade fashions, gifts, and home decor. Many of the items are Fair Trade, which means it has been produced in a safe environment using sustainable practices and by people receiving a fair wage for their labor (i.e. no sweatshops) Panara also serves as a venue for local artists, offering locally made jewelry and other handcrafted items. Panara is a point of interest for those visiting the Marquette area and is a favorite of area residents. Panara also also hosts a variety of events throughout the year including presentations on energy and spirit work, tarot and astrology readings, and others. Check our calendar of events and be sure to check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Panaramqt/page where we announce the arrival of new merchandise and keep you up to date on our offerings!
