Fair Trade Minneapolis

Fair Trade (Coffee & Tea, Chocolate, Sugar, Bananas, Ice Cream, Clothing) empowers farmers and workers, protects the environment, and fights poverty.

We encourage the Minneapolis City Council to designate the City of Minneapolis as a Fair Trade Town, and to purchase local and/or Fair Trade products for the city.

Please “like” our Facebook page and join our Zoom meetings on scheduled Monday evenings at 7:30 pm. After COVID, we plan to have even more fun!
