Founder Julio Zegarra-Ballon, a native of Peru, has been selling Fair Trade and artisan-made products since 2012. He began with a mobile retail operation and online store ( www.zeebeemarket.com ) before opening the first Zee Bee Market storefront on South Grand Blvd. in November 2014.

Zee Bee Market’s expansion is a testament that today’s consumers want to use Fair Trade as a force for positive change. Most products made in the developing world come from marginalized and impoverished workers. With few options, many U.S. consumers are forced to make purchases that continue the cycle of poverty overseas However, Fair Trade certification informs and empowers customers by assuring them that the items they’re purchasing have provided the artist or farmer a living wage and safe working conditions. Zee Bee Market is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation.
