“Plates and to-go containers are the single greatest source of trash at the market,” manager Kim Dow explains. She hopes to reduce the amount significantly and you can help.
Customers are encouraged to bring their own washable plates and containers. It’s easy! If you enjoy prepared foods at farmers markets, just keep a plate, silverware, cloth napkin and to-go containers or tiffin in your car, nestled in with your reusable shopping bags, so that you don’t have to think about it at the last minute.
