Markets are enjoyable and help the producer groups we work with to reach more people. Our prices mean that fair trade is not exclusively for the well-off - it's for everyone. The producers take an enormous amount of care in making the products and the markets show a wide audience the quality of the goods. We love our stuff and hope you will love it too. And, traditionally, a market is where lots of people can come together and have a great day.
