Ask! The simplest way for your local market to know that you care about where your bananas come from is to tell them. If you live within the regions of the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and Upper Midwest, chances are good that your store has the potential to begin carrying Equal Exchange bananas if their customers want them. If it is important to you, ask friends and neighbors to request Equal Exchange bananas as well. The more interest (even if it is multiple requests from you!) the more likely your produce department is to look into carrying more equitable produce. Read this inspiring story about a group in Minnesota that successfully petitioned to get Equal Exchange bananas into their local store.
