Look for us on the south side of City Hall Park in Burlington (closer to Main St.). Our celebration will be happening at the same time as the Burlington Farmer’s Market. The event is free and open to the public.

World Fair Trade Day is a global event that celebrates fair trade and its positive impact by promoting local businesses and organizations committed to making trade fair.

Burlington is the 12th Fair Trade Town in the U.S.A. We aspire to educate our community about the benefits of fair trade in developing countries and to inspire everyone to choose fair trade when possible.
