Caribbean culture is something that spans far beyond music and entertainment. In fact, both Caribbean natives and Caribbean American people have contributed vastly to global society in ways you may not know — especially as it relates to the things you buy.

Ranging from makeup and fashion pieces to books and home decor, Caribbean-founded brands continue to lead with both diverse and intrinsically unique perspectives.

June is Caribbean American Heritage Month, and in an effort to help our readers both diversify the products they frequent and learn more about some they may currently use, In The Know by Yahoo has created this shop to keep you in the loop.

Keep scrolling to check out everything from need-specific sections to breakout articles, features and videos highlighting some of our favorite Caribbean-founded brands, authors and even hot sauces in our expert-curated Caribbean-Owned Brands Shop.
