Fair Trade San Diego 2011 Local Shopping Guide & Resources

Fair Trade San Diego is happy to announce its 2011 Local Fair Trade Shopping Guide.  This guide offers a long, though not exhaustive, list of places to buy Fair Trade goods in San Diego County. It is exciting to see the many different options concerned shoppers have when purchasing Fair Trade. The list features both vendors with storefronts and online, and also has a list of websites offering information and resources on Fair Trade. 

To access this great list click on the ‘Resources’ button on our blog.

Do you know a shop selling Fair Trade that isn’t on our list? Let us know their information and we will be happy to add them!
