Silk Road Tea Party
December 14, 2019
10:00 to 5:00

On December 16, 1773, the Sons of Liberty staged a protest of monumental size.  They boarded three vessels, cracked open hundreds of wooden casks, and poured 45 tons of tea overboard.  This bold and daring move helped shift our nation towards independence.  A handful of people, determination, courage to stand up, and the world is changed.  At the Silk Road Market, we applaud those who are trying to change the world for the better.  So on December 14th, in the spirit of the Boston Tea Party, we’re cracking open our teas.  Bring your favorite tea cup, or use one of ours, and drink up.  For all of us with ties to the British, fresh baked scones will be available as well.  So eat, drink, and enjoy browsing a variety of handcrafted items from around the world.   


World Fair Trade Day,
May 9, 2020
10:00 to 5:00


It's World Fair Trade Day once again! Come join us Saturday as we celebrate how fair trade is helping people around the world. And, of course, there'll be snacks. There are always snacks. :) This year, we're doing something different. We're giving away FREE ROSES DIRECT FROM ECUADOR! Did you know about 80% of cut flowers sold in the United States are grown internationally in Latin America, South America, and Africa. Over 300,000 women are employed by flower producers all over the world. More often than not, they are exploited to keep costs low for American and European consumers. These women are often subjected to sexual abuse, human rights violations, exposure to toxic agrochemicals, and extremely dangerous working conditions. In many cases they are not paid for overtime hours, and are lucky to be paid fairly for regular hours worked. Fair Trade changes all of that, and we've decided to jump on the Fair Trade Rose Train for this one day only. We're super excited to be able to offer these wonderful roses to brighten up your day. So please stop by Saturday for a free rose and to support my wonderful artisans from all over the world. We hope to see you then!
