St Albans gets behind Fairtrade Fortnight
Volunteers took to the streets of St Albans this weekend to raise awareness of Fairtrade products.
Visitors to the market had the chance to sample a range of Fairtrade products and learn more about the foundation from a team from the local branch of Oxfam on Saturday.
The group set up a stall outside Clarks to mark Fairtrade Fortnight, which began last weekend.
Abi Owen, manager of the Chequer Street charity shop, said: "We’re trying to make everybody in St Albans always buy Fairtrade.
"It was really well received. It went really well.
"Lots of people didn’t know it was Fairtrade Fortnight."
