What is

Fair Trade

“Fair Trade is, fundamentally, a response to the failure of conventional trade to deliver sustainable livelihoods and development opportunities to people in the poorest countries of the world…Poverty and hardship limit people’s choices while market forces tend to further marginalize and exclude them. This makes them vulnerable to exploitation, whether as farmers and artisans in family-based production units or as hired workers within larger businesses.” World Fair Trade Organization (http://wfto.com/)

 

About The Shop

Olive Branch was founded to give the Martha's Vineyard community a chance to discover organic extra virgin olive oils and other foods from Palestine and to have a glimpse - through arts and crafts - of a living culture with ancient roots. Olive Branch is proud to be part of the Vineyard based World Market collective, so our shop also features handcrafts from Haiti, Zanzibar, Kenya, Bangladesh, India, and Guatemala. We are also honored to carry honey and beeswax candles from the Vineyard's own ISLAND BEE.

 

Olive Branch Fair Trade is a member of 

BuyLocalMV / Island Club. We offer Island Card discounts on most items, except books, paintings, and prints.

This Spring, we are open 

Wednesday thru Saturday  11:00 - 5

and when the lights are on !

We are also open by appointment 7 days a week. Please call or text 774-563-3083

It's a small shop, so we are welcoming one or two customers at a time.
