Wine and the wis­dom of buy­ing Fair­trade

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - JUNCTION 10 -

FAIR­TRADE wine, ba­nanas, peanuts and cakes were tried and tested at a mar­ket on Satur­day. Shop­pers at Wye Farm­ers’ Mar­ket were en­cour­aged to sam­ple the prod­ucts as part of Fair­trade Fort­night. Among the prod­ucts on of­fer were orange juice, red and white wine, flap­jacks and choco­late cakes, as well as wooden carv­ings which were made by a com­mu­nity in Kenya. Mar­ket man­ager Sarah Hunt­ley said: “The mar­ket was very busy and there was a lot of in­ter­est in the Fair­trade prod­ucts. “Peo­ple think Fair­trade is just about cof­fee and choco­late, but there are so many more prod­ucts and it is very im­por­tant peo­ple find out about them.”
