Here at Harvest Market, offering fair trade products is an important choice.  By purchasing fair trade goods, you can ensure that the farmers who grow the beans for your first cup of coffee in the morning and your last bite of chocolate in the evening are receiving a fair, livable wage for the labor and care they put into supplying the delicious products we know and love. These wages are regulated by a variety of certifying organizations. Currently, we carry an array of certified fair trade chocolates, coffees, teas, sugars, specialty foods and bananas as well as seasonal gifts and products in our house wares department.

Fair Trade goes beyond buying coffee, tea and chocolate from the Global South, however. When we buy directly from local farmers and farmer cooperatives—like the fresh produce we get from Peaceful Valley Farm or Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative—we engage in a direct trade arrangement where the farmer sets the price. This goes a long way to ensuring the long-term economic viability of locally owned, sustainable family farms. view more
