As a fair trade store we support Indigenous communities, cultural survival, Eco-Projects, Women's empowerment & Economic Opportunity through fair, equitable and direct trade relationships.
As members of the Fair Trade Federation, we join a large network of businesses world-wide that share a common goal: to create a just and sustainable economic system through fair trade.

“Every time we go to Traditions, we leave happy and comforted by everything this great place has. I keep meaning to go more often, as I somehow feel partly healed from the world's woes by just stopping in. This place is wonderful in every way, and smells great too!”

“A very welcoming cafe and shop. Well priced healthy food, get a beautifully made drink from some of the fabulous staff. A great place to sit and watch the magic that is Olympia. Slip into the shop next door for fair-trade and beautifully made goods.”
