This year’s Holiday Market is right around the corner! As a member of Chicago Fair Trade, we are committed to "raising awareness about and building support for fair trade and its principles of environmental sustainability, ethical production methods, fair wages, and safe working conditions" for communities in developing countries. In addition, we support local community groups such as Care for Real and the Ibeji Resource Center which supports the Night Ministry.
The day of the Market is such an exciting time. Our vendors love returning every year and seeing new and familiar faces. The energy is the room is really amazing. But what really makes our Market run smoothly are all of our amazing volunteers who step up to help out.
