SARATOGA SPRINGS – The first Saturday in December is once again the day that Capital Region residents will have the opportunity to join the fight against worldwide poverty.

The 4th annual Saratoga Fair Trade Market Expo is scheduled to take place on Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the City Center. Admission to the expo is free.  

The Fair Trade Market Expo lends a hand-up to artisans in the developing world, giving them the opportunity to earn an honorable living and support their families.

This year’s expo features 17 vendors and projects including several with roots in the city. They include Mango Tree Imports; the Bosnian Handcraft Project; AOET Uganda; the Giving Circle; Ben and Jerry’s; Bon Bon Brazil NY; and Every Basket Counts. 

New Life Fellowship Church and the Bosnian Handcraft Project at 51 Old Gick Road in Saratoga Springs are hosting the expo.
