Fair Trade Fairs

The Fair Trade Fair features handcrafted items from developing‐world artisans and is held in partnership with Ten Thousand Villages and CRISPAZ of El Salvador. Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than sixty years cultivating long-term buying relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to unique gifts, accessories and home decor from around the world.

Each year, the Fair Trade Fair is held in November/December and a Fair Trade Chocolate Sale is held in February. Check out the Events Calendar for up-to-date event listings.
