The annual holiday market at the ECM promotes fair-trade awareness while offering a practical means to chip away at your Christmas list. The selection encompasses a range of goods including agricultural products (coffee, tea, chocolate, etc.), handicrafts, clothing, decorative arts, and much more. All of the wares are fair trade: an international certification that ensures workers in traditionally exploited industries instead make a fair wage allowing them to live with dignity.
