Celebrate World Fair Trade Day in Albuquerque

Saturday, May 13
10 am - 4 pm
 4401 Cutler NE Suite C (map)
Albuquerque, 87110
On Saturday, May 13, people of conscience across five continents will come together to celebrate World fair Trade Day. In past years, we we would have commemorated this day at Peacecraft in Albuquerque and Ten Thousand Villages in Santa Fe. 

While those fair trade retailers have since closed their doors, there there is a new option in Albuquerque. Baskets of Africa and HoonArts Fair Trade, both members of the Fair Trade Federation, invite you to an "on-the-ground" look at the Fair Trade movement, and why it matters more than ever in today's painfully chaotic global political and economic climate. Shop for extraordinary hand-crafted textiles, baskets, gifts and accessories from master artisans in Central Asia and Africa. Purchase your last-minute Mother's Day gifts, learn about fair trade and participate in a day of community-building.
