Co-chair Wilfred Allan says this is the tenth anniversary for the event, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
“Last year Yarmouth had the largest single sale in Nova Scotia with sales of just over $31,000.
“With new products and more folks knowing about us we hope to do even better this year,” he said.
Ten Thousand Villages, which began in 1946, is the oldest fair trade organization in North America. Volunteers run the Yarmouth sale and all proceeds go to providing fair trade prices to artisans in more than 30 developing countries—most of them women.
The event has close to 100 volunteers.
Admission is free and the event is stroller and wheelchair accessible. VISA, Master Card, debit cards, and personal cheques are accepted in addition to cash.
