Get to Know Fair Anita - New at the 2017 Mill City Farmers Market 

Cara Lahti and Anna Bottila (pictured below) debuted Fair Anita at the July 8 Mill City Farmers Market. The jewelry, clothing, cards and other items offered are fair trade products made by over 8,000 talented, yet marginalized, women in 16 countries. It's a wonderful feeling knowing you're helping someone earn a better life for themselves and their children when you wear, using or gift these items. Scroll to the end of this post to see a short video of Fair Anita's founder Joy McBrien explain how this organization came to be.

They will return to the MCFM on August 5 and September 2. You can also find them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
