Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera will sponsor the 12th annual Women and Fair Trade Festival. Eight cooperatives, formed by women adversely affected by globalization, will come from all over the world to tell their stories and sell handmade crafts, toys, pottery, jewelry, clothing, textiles and weavings. Women and their representatives gather in Austin to meet local buyers, enjoy local musicians, and celebrate cultural exchange. The market festival will also feature live music, poetry, and raffles.

Location: First Unitarian Universalist Church, 4700 Grover Ave., Austin 78756
