Ten Thousand Villages

If you aren't familiar with Ten Thousand Villages, then you are in for a wonderful surprise. Being one of the oldest and largest Fair Trade organizations in North America, it creates opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships. From personal accessories, home decor and gift items from around the globe - the hard work of these artisans is showcased in such a manner that honours their creativity and culture. This is "commerce with a conscience" - Ten Thousand Villages allows men and women around the world to earn an honest living, provide a home, food and education for their children, and to be gainfully employed in a job that brings dignity and joy. This is also "commerce with a heart" - people are truly at the heart of this organization. 

{Zatoun Olive Oil & Za'atar Combo}

As a foodie, I am proud to support Ten Thousand Villages and investing in the dreams and joy of talented artisans around the world. While I am a true locavore, exploring beyond my own city is exciting. This olive oil and spice combo I received makes the perfect gift for your favourite food lover and allows them to go on an adventure right in their own kitchen - it also includes a hand crafted plate from Vietnam.

Delicious, high quality and fairly traded, Zatoun’s extra virgin olive oil is perfect for salads, cooking and dipping. As a staple spice of Palestine, Za’atar is known for its fresh herb taste and inspiring zing. Add Za’atar to breads, dressings, soups, vegetables, meats, marinades and everything in between.

What is Za’atar?

A Middle Eastern spice blend consisting of thyme, roasted sesame seeds, sumoc and sea salt.

What is Zatoun?

Zatoun is a volunteer-run organization that provides much-needed marketing aid to olive farmers who have no other means of generating income. Zatoun brings together people of all faiths and traditions to work. A portion of the sale of Zatoun oil goes to support Trees for Life, a program with the aim of planting more than 20,000 olive tree saplings across the West Bank every year.


Wonderful recipes that incorporate Za'atar:
