The largest Fair Trade Market in the United States
We are the nation’s largest Fair Trade Market with over 3,000 sq. ft. of merchandise from around the world. By choosing Fair Trade products, you get great value, and ensure equitable wages and treatment for farmers, artisans, and their communities. Our Fair Trade Market offers unique holiday gifts, international crafts, food samples, educational presentations, and giveaways.
Fair Trade is a social justice movement that ensures farmers and artisans are paid a living wage for their products and that consumers receive global goods at a fair price. Buying Fair Trade products supports living wages, care for the environment, no child or forced labor, gender equality, and safe working conditions.
In 2019 they will celebrate the 17th year of Manchester UMC’s Fair Trade Market. Cumulative sales over the past 16 years total nearly $1.4 million, which equates to 372 families supporting themselves! Those are incredible numbers, thanks to you, our shoppers. By choosing Fair Trade products, you are making a difference for farmers, artisans, and their communities worldwide.
