Fair Trade Minneapolis
We encourage people to choose Fair Trade products to pay farmers & artisans fairly, protect the environment with the Fair Trade Standards & ensure that cocoa is farmed by adults.
Haiti needs help. At art fairs & craft shows, and nonprofit fundraisers & galas, we offer artisan-made Fair Trade products by Papillon Marketplace in Haiti: metal wall art, garden stakes, jewelry, 14oz ceramic mugs, Haiti Friend Dolls, holiday ornaments & greeting cards. When time permits, we give away Tiny Tony’s Chocolonely & generous samples of dozens of varieties of Fair Trade tea – to raise awareness & interest in Fair Trade tea.
In Minneapolis, we give Fair Trade Awards (for free) to small businesses & food co-ops to celebrate the number of different Fair Trade products they sell. We’re a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit w/ EIN 86-3602442. To donate, please text FAIR to 53555, thank you!
