A delegation to Chiapas Mexico to learn about Fair Trade coffee growing and a recommendation of the Presbyterian Church USA to use  Fair Trade Organic coffee and sugar was the impetus for a decision that Fair Trade coffee could be sold in the church and the Fair Trade coffee would be served exclusively in the church.
This led to the organization of the Just Fare Market with First Presbyterian making available space for the developing Fair Trade outlet.  Members continue to enjoy Fair Trade coffee from the Interfaith Department of Equal Exchange during Sunday morning coffee hour as well as at other church events.  Fair Trade Palms are purchased for
Palm Sunday.
