Fair Trade is a partnership between producers, buyers, shopkeepers and customers. It works to remove the disadvantages suffered by producers, to increase producers’ access to markets and promote a sustainable and fair income for the producers. Its mission is to promote social equity, environmental protection and economic security through trade.

Trading since 1995 as an independent company we at Traders Fair have been committed to these aims and objectives.


In October 2009 Traders Fair opened their shop in the foyer at Lion Walk Church.  Though opening times have changed over the years, the shop has remained in this location since 2009.  Opening is currently 9 am until 5 pm each Wednesday.  Please note that Traders Fair is closed throughout August and generally from Christmas until mid-February.
