Mark your calendars: Join us for the biggest fair trade event in the USA! Our annual 2-day World Fair Trade Day festival and market will take place at Daley Plaza from 9 AM to 6 PM on Wednesday, May 3, and Thursday, May 4. Shop from the collections of over thirty locally-owned ethical vendors, featuring products made by artisans in Nepal, Ghana, Colombia, and more!

Sample fair trade coffee and chocolate, shop fair trade products from over 20 countries, and hear from fair trade business owners about the impact fair trade is having on the lives of their partner farmers and artisans.

Join us Wednesday at 5 PM for a fair trade potluck as chefs from local restaurants (Frontera Grill, Green River, Nico Osteria, and more)  will be creating treats using fair trade ingredients!
