We'll be partnering with Friendly City Food Co-Op & offering FREE FT Bananas (while supplies last) to shoppers in celebration of World Fair Trade Day. We will also have educational opportunities and featured products around the store!
Fair Trade is an essential tool that folks around the world can utilize to promote a healthier, more ethical, more fair global market. Ten Thousand Villages works with over 180 artisans in over 35 countries around the world to provide Fair Trade buying opportunities to Western consumers and to provide secure, sustainable jobs to people in developing countries.
Our artisans depend on consumers in North America to provide food for their families, personal growth, educational opportunities for their children, empowerment, and more. World Fair Trade Day is a way to excite our local community here in Harrisonburg about these initiatives in order to grow a community of local Fair Trade supporters!
