How to Sustainably Shop at the Farmers Market: 7 of Our Best Tips


When I started going zero waste, one of the first things I did was go grocery shopping at the farmers market. I was nervous that the food would be too expensive, that I would feel awkward scrutinizing produce right in front of the person who planted its seeds, and that trying to decide how many potatoes I needed would be even harder underneath the beating sun than it was inside an air-conditioned grocery store. But luckily, none of that was actually anything to worry about, and now I’m a farmers market regular.

Shopping at the farmers market is a great way to save money, support your town’s economy, reduce waste, lower your carbon footprint, and more. Here’s everything you need to know about shopping at a farmers market, plus some tips on how to do so sustainably.
