Fairtrade Fortnight is almost upon us and, as Edinburgh is a Fairtrade City, we wanted to do our bit to promote this important topic. Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices, Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.At our Fairtrade market you will find friendly, smiling, local, independent Fair Trade traders with imaginative and interesting products ranging from chocolate, coffee, and foodstuffs, to home items, embroidery and woodcrafts, clothes and backpacks. Fair Trade is so much more than coffee and tea: with more than 6,000 products to select from.
