Sustainability Market—Fair Trade Town Basel
May 14, 2022, is World Fair Trade Day, and Basel-Stadt will be receiving the "Fair Trade Town" award on this very day, making it the largest Fair Trade Town in Switzerland. The Markthalle will be celebrating this award with a special market—the first sustainability market, Fair Trade Town Basel—where you will see what our Fair Trade Town Basel has to offer!
Fair Trade Town is an award for towns and communities that are committed to fair trade. It pursues the goal of raising awareness of sustainable and fair consumption and bringing about a change in behavior in cities and communities. Fair Trade Town is a campaign by Swiss Fair Trade. For the award, various criteria must be met within five categories. Cities, municipalities, companies, institutions, shops, gastronomy, hotels, or private individuals can participate and become members of Fair Trade Town.
