Cllr Del Goddard, Cabinet Member for Business and Regeneration said "Enfield Council is proud to support the Fairtrade movement, by stocking its products in our own canteen and by having this event. On Saturday we will celebrate being one in a thousand Fair Trade Towns.
"By having Enfield as a Fairtrade Town it shows our commitment to those in the developing world, and that we are determined to ensure people in the world's poorest countries get an honest price for their products and can trade fairly.
"We would like as many people as possible to come along and find out more about Fairtrade, if they are a business they can see how they can stock the goods, and if they are a consumer where they can buy them."
