Fair Trade Market coming to Fulton

An International Fair Trade Christmas Market will take place in early December in Fulton.

The event is being hosted by the First Presbyterian Church mission committee. The market promotes fair trade products, which are defined in a release as products "produced under conditions that provide the workers and artisans a fair wage and safe working conditions."

The market will take place from 4-7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, and from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 718 Court St.

Kelley Head, First Presbyterian Church organist and pianist, will play live music from 6-7 p.m. Dec. 2. Tea samples will be available Friday night, and coffee samples will be available Saturday morning.

The Fair Trade partners for the market are SERRV, Cafe Justo, Ten Thousand Villages and Equal Exchange.

Profits from the market will support FPC's Matthew 25 Initiatives. These initiatives seek to eradicate systemic poverty, dismantle structural racism and promote congregational vitality, according to a release.
