Visit Chatswood Mall on Saturday 3 December and purchase a gift for your loved one at the Fair Trade Christmas Market, presented by Every Product Has A Story (EPHAS). 
 
Featuring a beautiful range of unique handmade toys, homewares, clothing and accessories to choose from, all items available for purchase have been crafted by people who have been given the opportunity for a better life for themselves and their families.
 
EPHAS sources products direct from organisations that prescribe to the principles of fair trade as set by the World Fair Trade Organisation, meaning that everyone involved in making the products are paid a fair wage, the products are produced with care for the environment and no child labour has been used. 
 
Fair trade food and drinks will also be available on the day, with live music by Egypsy.
 
“Come along to this special Christmas market and help support this worthy cause by purchasing a fair trade gift for yourself or a loved one,” said Willoughby Mayor, Gail Giles-Gidney. “By purchasing these products, you are supporting the fair and ethical production of goods as well as the people who create them,” she said.
