planet RRRIn 2016, the Broad Ripple Farmers Market will be “greener” than ever! We are taking steps to lessen our environmental impact with a campaign to “Kick the Plastic Habit” (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)!

Part 1 – REDUCE the amount of plastic at the Market.

The full campaign will roll out in phases beginning opening day, May 7th. At that time we will implement the first steps in our efforts to REDUCE plastics at the Market.

  • Wooden baskets will be provided for gathering produce to purchase. (May 7)
  • Beverages at the Market will be offered without plastic straws. (May 7)
  • Vendors will no longer supply plastic shopping bags at their booths. (July 1)
  • Plastic straws will no longer be available for beverages at the Market. (July 1)

Next time we’ll have more information on how you can REUSE items to help “Kick the Plastic Habit”!
