Arizona Fair Trade Cafe located in the heart of downtown Phoenix lives fully up to its name. The cafe buys local, organice and fair trade ingredients to provide the best tasting menu and the best for its customers.
The word fair trade has many people asking "What exactly is that?" Fair trade means the farmers and workers who spend their time harvesting the crops are giving a fair wage for their work.
AZ Fair Trade Cafe buys most, if not all, its products from local vendors and the tables that are painted China blue say just that.
When entering the cafe, warm welcomes greet each customers and an easy menu including salads, sandwiches and even their raw vegan options. Music plays over their speaker system and puts everyone in a good mood.
On to the food, the cafe has delicious options ranging from tuna melts, paninis, and their house salad.
The house salad includes spinach, almonds, cranberries, alpha sprouts, tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers served with a creamy balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!
Each bite is full of flavor and the vegetables taste fresh, right from the garden. The creamy balsamic vinaigrette adds a sweet, savory note to an overall pleasing dish.
The cafe also has teas and coffee all grown in Arizona. The coffee is roasted in Goodyear and the tea comes from Scottsdale. Even the napkins, lids and cups are made from recycled materials.
If salads, tuna melts and paninis are not in style for the hungry consumer, AZ Faire Trade Cafe makes a special weekday lunch that is 90 percent organic and 100 percent local and vegetarian.
So bring a friend and an appetite to enjoy some Arizona fresh goodness.
