The Sustainable Way to Shop Your Local Farmer’s Market

Farmers’ markets are an amazing option for living an eco-friendly, organic lifestyle. Being able to support local farmers and businesses all while sourcing produce that is healthy and in-season is a true blessing. We’ve focused on four ways to ensure that your trip to the farmer’s market is as sustainable as possible.

01. Plan Ahead
Make a list prior to arriving regarding what items you actually need. Are you cooking specific dishes in the upcoming week? Is there something you forgot last time and definitely want this time? Having a good idea of what you are going to use within the week or weeks is so beneficial at reducing waste.

02. Walk, Don't Drive
If you have the luxury of having a farmer’s market within walking distance, we encourage you to get those steps in. Now more than ever our greenhouse gas emissions are rising due to the amount of cars on the road and the excessive Carbon Dioxide they emit. We can do our part by skipping the short drives and opting for some fresh air.

03. Pass On The Receipt
Find a new way to pay. Most Farmers’ Markets now accept virtual payment where you can have your receipt emailed! This also protects you from the hazardous dyes on the ink and paper.

04. BYOB— Bring Your Own Bag
Did you know that in the US, we use a million plastic bags every 5 minutes? These end up in a landfill and can take up to 1,000 years to fully degrade (oceancrusaders.org)… Bringing your own nontoxic bags makes an unbelievable difference on our footprint. But also, how chic is carrying around a reusable bag versus a plastic one? That’s why we created this lightweight, durable organic cotton drawstring reusable bag that is perfect for tossing your fruits & veggies in (it can also be used for travel skincare and so much more, the possibilities are endless).
