Folky Food Feature: Fair Trade Products

Folky Food Feature: Fair Trade Products

A feature for food vendors that will be at the festival offering fair trade products.

Hey there folkies, it’s Fair Trade Month and we want to tell you about all our amazing vendors who offer Fair Trade products at the 2017 festival. Since 2008 we have been running the LOFT (Local, Organic, Fair Trade) food program. Our food vendors on site and in the campground, along with our backstage kitchen, offer a-LOFT of tasty meals made with sustainable ingredients. 

Boon Burger

Back again – the world’s first vegan burger Cafe! Creating a dining experience that offered 100% cruelty-free food but also tasted amazing AND was good for your health is important to Boon. All while making sure they have all the same options as a mainstream burger place would offer but all food is made from scratch, is cooked without fryers or microwaves and all waste is recycled or composted.


A family-owned business that serves doughnuts (made from scratch) and coffee with love! They use local and organic ingredients whenever possible and will offer a special vegan option for the festival. As for the coffee, they receive coffee beans from a roaster in Edmonton which sources them through direct trade with farmers.   

Chocolatier Constance Popp

Get your sweet tooth ready! Chocolatier Constance Popp will cool you down with fresh milkshakes, popsicles and ice cream cookies. Using only fresh, whole food ingredients with no artificial flavours or preservatives, Chocolatier Constance Popp produces only the best.

Forbidden Flavours

Coffee for the parents and sweet ice cream for the kiddos! Grab a coffee to keep you energized and an ice cream for your little ones then enjoy watching them play and enjoy the music in the Family Area.

Green Bean Coffee Imports

Celebrating their 10th year in business we are SO happy to be welcoming back Green Bean Coffee Imports! They really realize the importance of coffee, how it wakes people up, serves as an afternoon inspiration and most importantly, it brings people together. Above that they know that to brew great coffee, you need to build personal relationships with the coffee farmers they work with borders away. Coffee purchases at Green Bean can be a powerful force for change. 

Jonnies Sticky Buns (Campground)

For your morning pick me up or delicious dinner options head over to Jonnies Sticky Buns in the campground. With yummy cinnamon buns and fair trade coffee to get you energized for the day, you’re going to want to make it a regular daily stop.

The Red Ember (Campground)

You know the big red truck, the one with the scrumptious pizza? Of course, you do! The Red Ember makes wood-fired pizza with delicious local ingredients. Serving fair trade coffee to counter that post-pizza nap feel. Also, a great choice when you get back to the campground after a long day dancing at the festival.

Whales Tails

The perfect sweet snack is the always popular Whales Tails! If you have never had the delight of having one Whales Tails are deep fried bread topped with any of the following: sugar and cinnamon, honey, raspberry jam, chocolate sauce, herb and garlic, pizza, parmesan cheese and hot and spicy.

Food for Folks also offers fair trade options and you can learn more about them in our last food feature here.
