Photos: Fair Trade Market takes place in person

SCHENECTADY – St. Kateri’s Fair Market was held Saturday at Schenectady Parish School Gymnasium. The annual one-day event is the Capital Region’s only fair market and was held in person for the first time since 2019.

It featured local suppliers with global connections; shoppers found many ethically sourced gifts. Together, the vendors represent talented artisans from dozens of countries and a wide range of cultural traditions. Sales of handmade gifts provide fair and dignified economic opportunities for artisans, many of whom are women, who live in impoverished communities. Many gifts, like hand-woven pine needle baskets or upcycled purses, are made from natural or recycled materials.
