Fairtrade market to be staged in Seaford

THE ANNUAL Fairtrade Market returns to Seaford on Saturday March 10 when it takes place in the Clinton Halls. It will be the highlight of Fairtrade Fortnight in the town and will run from 10am to 1pm in Clinton Place.

Admission costs just 50p per person, with accompanied children allowed in for free.

There will be a range of stalls, providing a market atmosphere ideal for browsing.

A variety of Fairtrade goods, including clothing, crafts and food products, will be on display, with some available for purchase.

Delicious home made cakes, made with Fairtrade ingredients, will be available in the cafe area, with the opportunity to sit down and enjoy a free Fairtrade tea or coffee.

Face-painting will keep the children entertained, and there will even be live music for visitors to enjoy.

Fairtrade Fortnight takes place annually on a national basis and enables people to see the wide range of Fairtrade goods which are now available.

Fairtrade group chair Ralph Taylor said: “This is our big event of the year.

“The Fairtrade mark guarantees producers in developing countries a fair price for their goods.

“This is our opportunity to publicise Fairtrade and encourage people to look for the Fairtrade mark when doing their shopping.”
