SEAWEED and sorrel, calaloo and jerk chicken - just some of the delights on offer at a popular trade show that has links to Mahatma Ghandhi.

Due to its success last year, a second annual fair trade event is taking place at the Cutty Sark Gardens on Sunday, July 12.

The event features hand loomed cotton T-shirts from Mahaguthi in Nepal, a company set up by a student of Mahatma Ghandhi, where 95 per cent of its employees are women and the money raised from sales can provide an income for their village.

Organised by Greenwich council and Lovethatstuff the event has goods from 16 developing countries ranging from Palestinian olive oil to hand woven Ugandan fruit baskets.

Entrance is free and it runs from 11am to 4pm.
