This October, close to 100 Whole Foods Markets throughout Northern California, the Mid-Atlantic, and the Pacific Northwest, will be celebrating Whole Foods’ commitment to Fair Trade by hosting Fair Trade events featuring these fabulous Fair Trade companies:
- Alter Eco  chocolate (NorCal only)
- Angell Bar Organic Candy Bars  (select NorCal stores)
- Green & Black’s  chocolate
- Larabar 
- Rishi Tea 
- TCHO  chocolate (NorCal only)
Whole Foods Market offers nearly 1,000 Fair Trade Certified™ products, more than any other national retailer in the country! With so many Fair Trade products in the aisles, it’s a great place to start using the Fair Trade Finder application to find, tag and search for your favorite fair products. The app is easy and fun to use and is available for Facebook , iPhone  and Android .
Fair Trade Month is a great time to celebrate this growing movement and to remember that Every Purchase Matters. Find out if there are events happening at a Whole Foods’ near you !
