Beginning later this month, Lawrence’s annual Fair Trade Holiday Market will return to Ecumenical Christian Ministries, 1204 Oread Ave.
The market offers a place for area residents to find unique holiday gifts and help support disadvantaged artisans here and around the world.
The market’s hours are from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 27-28 and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 29 through Dec. 3.
The market will feature a selection of handcrafted art, crafts, home decor, jewelry, clothing, personal accessories, toys and games. This year Lawrence Fair Trade is also playing host to several events and educational activities.
During the first two days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., chair massages, freshly baked chapatti and crepes are offered for donations to benefit Comfort the Children International. During the same time, adults will staff The Kids Corner to guide children through arts and craft activities while parents shop.
From 5:15 p.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 1-2, Lawrence Fair Trade will screen films about international trade and the fair trade movement.
