Finding Fair Trade: San Francisco
This is truly the hub of fair trade in the Bay Area. You won't have to go very far to find fair trade food. Stores sell fair trade chocolate, coffee and tea as well as grocery stores that stock fair trade trade items. The number of fair trade items is increasing. Just this week I found a fair trade energy drink in a store in San Francisco. Not that I need one but any time I see a fair trade certification label it gets my attention.
They actually have signs in the store that say that they support fair trade! I love shopping here and it is owned by the workers. I find fair trade olive oil, tea, coffee, cookies, rice, agave, quinoa, cucumbers, mangoes, bananas, energy drinks, chocolate, flour, sugar, honey, coconut oil, spices, and more. Some fair trade foods are available in bulk such as quinoa and sugar.
