Fair trade changes the world...

     One World Market was started over 26 years ago by a group of committed volunteers who were determined to bring fair trade to Durham.  Today, we share the stories of artisans and connect caring customers to handmade gifts that change the world.  These empowering products provide fair wage jobs, safe working conditions, and life-saving resources for disadvantaged workers in over 70 developing countries. 

We're a different kind of store...

     Our store is unique and changes the world each and every day. We want to be able to tell that unique story with a unique name.  A name that sets us apart as the only fair trade, nonprofit store in Durham. A name that entices curious customers who want to make a difference, where shoppers will know right away that this is a place where their purchases will have big impact.

It's time for the next step...

     After a long and thoughtful process, the One World Market Board of Directors has voted to change the name of our store. Our goal is to expand our reach and end the confusion customers often have with the franchise World Market stores.     

Introducing the NEW One World Market.... 

Why Bull City Fair Trade?

     The name says it all.  We're based in Durham, otherwise known as the "Bull City," and we're a fair trade, nonprofit store!  No more confusion with the franchise World Market.  No more guessing about what's inside. 

Your support makes this community of hope possible...

     To make this change and to continue creating a world of opportunity, we need your help.  The truth is that a name change requires new everything - awnings, signs, website, business cards....we could go on and on.  But we won't.  We know you love this store and want to see it thrive.  We know we can count on your financial support to help us write this exciting new chapter for artisans across the globe and for the Bull City.

 

And with gratitude, we offer these gifts...

        Our artisan partners handmade a few fair trade treasures to help us express appreciation for your support (listed at right).  Depending on your level of giving, please feel free to choose a perk (or combine perks to donate even more).  These giving levels represent the minimum required to receive each perk, but after selecting a perk you will have the option to contribute an additional amount above the minimum to make your donation go further.  Or, you can skip the reward and allocate 100% of your support to fund the future of fair trade in Durham

Welcome to Bull City Fair Trade!  

     For over 26 years, One World Market has been creating opportunities and sustainable jobs around the world. That will continue to be possible because of  your support.  Thank you joining us on the next step in this fair trade journey! 

P.S.

     Our all-star board of directors will MATCH the first $4,000 raised.  Give by July 31st so your donation can be doubled!
