This year, NWFTC we are launching a series of local fair trade holiday bazaars for your shopping pleasure in partnership with local congregations. The series will include three different bazaars hosted by various congregations throughout the month of November and December, thanks to the growing success of the first annual bazaar at the First Unitarian Church in 2010. The markets serve to create a collective forum for the holidays to promote local organizations and businesses selling artisan crafted, fairly traded products from producers around the world and encourage conscious consumption for the holidays.
Enjoy and come shop with your favorite local businesses and organizations!
