PAMBE Ghana’s Global Market Celebrates Its Tenth Year in a New Midtown Location

Local nonprofit PAMBE Ghana brings its fair trade Global Market to Oklahoma City holiday shoppers, Nov. 9-Dec. 23.

This year, the Market will have a new location at 1301 N. Hudson Ave, Midtown, Oklahoma City, thanks to a new sponsorship from The Sieber Apartments, which is providing the space. For information about the location, visit www.thesieber.com.

“For ten years, the Global Market has provided fair trade shopping for unusual and unique gifts and folk art from around the world,” Tom Temple, PAMBE Ghana president, said. “Our volunteers and our customers appreciate that all profits go into supporting PAMBE Ghana’s educational program in northern Ghana.”

Beginning Nov. 9, the Global Market will be open noon-4 p.m. on Sunday; noon-6 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; and from noon-7 p.m. on Thursdays.

The Global Market is PAMBE Ghana’s main fundraiser for the La’Angum Learning Center. The center is a collaboration that has brought the promise of literacy to underserved villages in rural Ghana. An education is offered to both girls and boys, as well as children of all faiths.

Shoppers will have several new fair trade items to choose from this year, including recycled metal and springstone pieces from Zimbabwe. Volunteers staff the Global Market, and all merchandise is purchased directly from artisans or from certified members of the Fair Trade Federation. Fair trade principles include a guarantee that artisans are paid a fair price for their products. They also receive assistance with design development, quality control and improved working conditions.
