Today at Rainbow Grocery I found a new fair trade item, cucumbers. Still looking for a store that carries fair trade green beans which I know are out there somewhere. What a change from when the only fair trade produce you could be sure to find was bananas!
This week I went to the Fancy Food Show to see and talk to the fair trade producers. I learned about a new type of fair trade called Equitable Trade which sets a price for the money received by farmers when the product sells at wholesale. It will be interesting to see if this catches on.
