We focus on importers of international fair trade items from other countries. We are not adding new sellers of domestic goods. If you are a local crafter, check out other events like Madison Craftacular, HolidayFest or Holiday Craft Gifts.
We expect more from our vendors than importing products at a fair price. We would like our vendors to be full participants in the fair trade movement, for the long haul, and to make a commitment to their producers to help them develop their fair trade products in a sustainable manner.
We have non-profit vendors and for-profit fair trade businesses. We want to support the development of international fair trade as an alternative business model and so we seek a balance between having both types of vendors. In fact, we would love to prioritize adding more for-profit businesses that operate in a sustainable way for producers and business owners.
To inquire about becoming a vendor, please read the Fair Trade Federation principles, and then email fthfmadison “at” gmail.com.
