LINCOLN PARK — Chicago Fair Trade’s holiday pop-up shop is back with more than 30 local businesses that work with artisans across the globe.
The market is open 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sundays until Dec. 24 at 1457 N. Halsted St. Hours on the final day will be shortened to 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Validated parking for $2 for two hours is available.
Neighbors can find holiday gifts, including gourmet foods, handmade clothing and accessories, all produced with fair business practices that center worker safety. A list of vendors is online.
Founded in 2006, Chicago Fair Trade works to promote more equitable business practices across the city, including providing fair wages, using sustainable business models and establishing more transparent supply chains.
As an alternative business model, a main goal of fair trade is providing safer working conditions for the millions of people who live on less than $1 a day, especially women and children workers, according to the Chicago Fair Trade website.
