    COOS BAY, Ore. -- Products like coffee, tea, and bananas are popular, and the Coos Head Food Co-op wants locals to know the story behind them.

    Monday, they celebrated international Fair Trade Day and samples of those items were available.

    It's an effort to educate the public about fair employment and pay for those farmers.

    "Because everyone in the world deserves the right to have access to a livelihood, so at Coos Head Food Co-op we source products that are not just local but also, we like to think globally, act locally,”

    If you missed the event, they're having an open house Thursday through Saturday where these and other goods will be on hand.
