Thai Craft Fair – Support Fair Trade

I am a huge fan of the Thai Craft Fair, held generally twice a month on a Saturday in Bangkok. The fair features artisans throughout Thailand. While they have a lot of regular vendors, they currently are doing a rotating theme featuring each general region of the country.

The wares vary from paper lamps, silk scarves, wicker baskets, silver jewelry.. a lot of the typical souvenir shopping products. And the products at the fair generally are slightly more expensive and much better in quality. Given that the association promotes fair trade, sustainable development, and business management, I’m all for paying for a good cause.

  1. We are delighted that you like the ThaiCraft Fairs!
    Please continue to attend as many as you can when you are in Bangkok – it makes the village artisans very happy to know their hard work and skills are appreciated. Only large attendances will enable these fairs to continue as they have been doing since 1992!
