VIDEA's Fair Trade Fair - Nov. 12th - Dec. 12th, 2020

Once a year, VIDEA gathers with other socially conscious, fair trade community members to put on the Fair Trade Fair. The fair has grown substantially since its beginnings over 20 years ago!  This year, you can explore the Fair Trade Fair virtually! Visit each vendors’ page and learn about their history, their impact, the communities and artisans they are partnered with, and, of course, shop their stunning fair trade goods. By doing so, you are directly supporting small businesses and communities around the world.

The Fair Trade Fair isn’t just about adding yet another day of shopping to an already consumer-packed season though! Take a moment to learn about the different projects many of the vendors support; how they first got involved in fair trade and why it is important to them. Learning from one another and sharing stories and concerns regarding trade is also an important part of the Fair Trade Fair! Thank you for joining us to support our fair trade community!

VIDEA has been a strong supporter of fair trade over the last few decades - supporting the development of fair trade initiatives in Zambia and producing learning resources including "Trade my Way, the Coffee Trade - a teacher’s Guide" and "Deceptive Beauty: the story of Fair Flowers".
