Rutland Fairtrade Market
Saturday, November 26th
The Rutland Fairtrade Market returns to Oakham Castle, with a fabulous variety of stallholders this year, offering Fairtrade and ethically traded products from around the world, including foods, clothes, toys, accessories and hand-made crafts. In addition, there will be stalls selling locally made items ranging from woollen rugs & scarves to hand blended aromatherapy products. While browsing the stalls, visitors will be able enjoy Fairtrade refreshments and homemade cakes.
Through buying Fairtrade products, visitors to the market will be helping producers in some of the world's poorest countries to use trade as a means of improving their living standards. These producers receive a guaranteed price for their produce plus a Fairtrade premium which is invested in social or environmental projects in their wider communities.
The Market will be opened by The High Sheriff of Rutland, Dr Sarah Furness.
Price: Free admission
The event runs from 10:00am to 3:00pm
