MFT promotes awareness of Fair Trade products and principles – in supermarkets, smaller retail shops, coffee bars and locally-owned restaurants, schools, colleges, community organizations, religious bodies, businesses and, of course, at the civic level.

In the Mankato area, the Mankato Farmers’ Market and local thrift stores are recognized by MFT as a kindred spirits. “Buy local – buy fair, recycle” is a shared vision and point of advocacy.
