Old North Fair Trade Market

MISSION STATEMENT:  To follow the lead of a just God in providing a foundation of economic stability and dignity for oppressed people through maximizing the power of fair trade with all profits supporting the least, the last and the lost.

The Fair Trade Market is committed to offering unique and beautiful items created by artisans in the worldwide Fair Trade network. The artisans who work under the principles of Fair Trade are better able to preserve and provide for their families. Fair Trade organizations promote producers’ cultural traditions adapting their work to Western markets, while nurturing local cultural identity.  The Market has been a member of the Fair Trade Federation since April, 2013.
