Fair Trade

Fair Trade Fest

Join us for our annual Fair Trade Fest, held the first Wednesday of November in the McMaster University Student Centre Marketplace from 10 am until 5 pm. The event features fair trade vendors, local artisans, and educational displays. During the noon hour we host a fair trade speaker.

The resource centre offers a wide variety of fair trade products, from chocolate and coffee to handmade woven baskets. 100% of the proceeds go to support the grassroot organizations and individuals who produce them.

“Fair Trade is not a charity, it is a form of international cooperation in which the North and South can work together to promote a better future.”
