One such beverage is Iced Bhakti Chai — an organic, free trade, non-genetically modified, gluten-free vegan chai beverage that is made using a variety of ingredients rooted in Indian Ayurvedic healing practices. The aptly-named Steaz drink — an all-natural, organic and fair trade iced tea — was also featured, with the brand showcasing its varieties of sparkling green teas and energy drinks.

The fair also displayed 100 percent raw, organic coconut water as well as organic blend Peerless Coffee, a fair trade brand that includes such flavors as French Roast, Balthazar Organic Blend and Organic Italian Roast.

The event also included locally-sourced Nika Purified Water, which comes from local waters and is specially processed, with 100 percent of its profits going toward funding of clean water, education and sanitation projects in impoverished and developing countries.

Additionally, one of many organic snacks given out at the fair included was the GMO-free snack bar: That’s It. With frankly named flavors such as “Apples + Cherries,” “Apples + Apricots,” and “Apples + Pears,” each That’s It bar is made of nothing but two servings of fruit.
