Celebrate a Fair Trade Berkeley with Mayor Tom Bates

Mayor Tom Bates poses with the Fair Trade Berkeley Steering Committee.

On July 13, 2010, Berkeley became the 19th Fair Trade Town in the United States when the City Council passed a Fair Trade resolution, voicing the City’s commitment to Fair Trade.

Now it’s time to celebrate!

Join Fair Trade Berkeley, Buy Local Berkeley and Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates to commemorate this accomplishment for Berkeley’s first ever Fair Trade happy hour at Saul’s Restaurant & Deli on September 23 from 4-5:30pm. Enjoy appetizers, sample Fair Trade treats from Divine Chocolate, Honest Tea, Numi Tea, La Yapa Quinoa and Thanksgiving Coffee. The happy hour event runs parallel to the Thursday's Farmer's Market, so bring your bags and enjoy the Buy Local, Buy Fair extravaganza!

Admission is $15.00 and includes on Fair Trade cocktail by the Fair Trade Spirits Company. Proceeds will help further the educational outreach of Fair Trade Berkeley to grow consumer and retailer awareness regarding the importance of Fair Trade.
