According to Green America's Guide to Fair Trade, "If you don't see the Fair Trade label in local stores, approach the manager or write the company requesting that they carry Fair Trade."
And if you find they are already carrying Fair Trade products, make sure you thank them for making the products available. They need to know that customers like you care about the origins of the products you buy.

Shop Fair Trade. Shop local. It matters. It always matters.
If you would like more information about organizing a campaign to get your local supermarket to stock Fair Trade, contact Green America at firstname.lastname@example.org for an organizing toolkit.
