Why Fair Trade?


 One Fair World (formerly Ten Thousand Villages-Salem) is a not-for-profit fair trade retailer that markets products made and grown by artisans and food producers from more than 150 groups in 50+ countries.

Over the years we have cultivated long-term buying relationships with vendors who ensure that these individuals receive a fair price for their skills and labor and consumers have access to unique gifts, accessories, home decor and food products from around the world.

One Fair World is your open door to a global network of social entrepreneurs who strive to improve the livelihood of disadvantaged artisans and growers by building a market for their products in North America. We provide a vital link to U.S. consumers for artisan and food producer partners who often lack access to markets.

As a fair trade retailer, One Fair World is a successful, not-for-profit enterprise. We use sales profits to increase purchases from artisan and food producer partners. With every sale to consumers, artisan and farmer partners thrive when provided with the opportunity to build on traditional skills.  One Fair World. It's who we are and what we do.

Fair trade purchases help improve the lives of thousands of individuals in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.
