Fifty people from north Norfolk enjoyed a 'Traidcraft big brew' of tea, coffee and cakes at Northrepps village hall.
Organiser Janet Terry said: 'It was great to see so many people enjoying food and drink from fair trade suppliers.
'And also to see them contributing by buying products to make sure that farmers, workers and artisans from some of the poorest countries in the world get the chance to trade their way out of poverty and help them and their communities to flourish.'
North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb, a former Liberal spokesman on international development, was on hand to lend his support to the community and help improve the lives of others in the Third World.
In addition to future 'big brew' and sale events, there are plans for a 'pop up' restaurant featuring fair trade food products from India. Contact Janet Terry at firstname.lastname@example.org
