Global Village Market in Hamilton is helping to build strong community relationships through the fair trade, organic goods offered at their take out café and specialty shop.
The concept of fair trade is based on a mutual support between consumers, farmers and artisans to change the way we buy products for the benefit of everyone in value, ethics, quality and establishing long term relationships.
Located in Westdale village, Global Village Market serves fresh organic coffee with a wide selection of beans from Birds and Beans in Etobicoke, Hewitt’s Dairy ice cream and an assortment of delicious and locally made baked goods.
Some of their specialty items include:
Coffee prepared with Hario equipment.
Vegan and gluten free options provided by Sweets from the Earth in Toronto.
Loose leaf tea from Ceylon Tea Bush in Hamilton.
Chocolate by Chocosol Traders in Toronto.
High grade olive oils and balsamic vinegars directly from Quebec.
Gourmet mustards and preserves.
Global Village opened their doors in 2004 and has since become a community hub and meeting place for those people who enjoy shopping locally and supporting local business.
A big part of the benefit of the fair trade concept is practicing sustainability. Global Village adapts to the community with ever changing superior products from local producers and delivers those products to customers so that they get a chance to participate in the local market with choices that have a positive impact on the world and the local economy. It also allows consumers the chance to make healthier choices when it comes to the food they eat and the added nutritional value of fresh local produce.
