For the third year in a row, Eau Claire will be the site of a unique shopping experience: The 2018 Eau Claire Global Market! This one-day event will feature a host of vendors selling Fair Trade products and food items from around the world.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 10 and don’t miss your chance to:
1. Shop handmade products and food items from more than 40 around the globe. Jewelry and accessories from Kenya, scarves and blankets from India and Nepal, greeting cards and bags from South Africa and artwork from Haiti are just a few of the products and countries that will be represented at this year’s market.
2. Discover the people behind more than 20 organizations working to affect positive change. House of Talents seeks to alleviate poverty by connecting talented artisans in developing countries to consumer markets worldwide. The Sari Bazaar’s products support the empowerment of Indian women, often helping them out of the sex trade and giving them training and skills to become independent and self-sufficient. Haiti Allies works hand-in-hand with the Cite Soleil Community School, located in one of the poorest, most violent places in the world. The 2018 Eau Claire Global Market is your chance to meet these unique vendors, hear their stories and learn why they’re so passionate about what they do.
3. Support sustainable livelihoods and community development across the globe. Thanks to the hard work of each Eau Claire Global Market vendor, your purchases will affect positive change around the world, from helping alleviate poverty and support women at risk to fighting human trafficking and providing scholarships for families in need.
