Landfill waste is a growing concern for many. The Santa Monica Farmers Markets proudly boast two markets which have transitioned to Zero Waste reducing the impact on our environment by diverging all waste created at the markets away from landfills to alternate waste streams. All products sold at the farmers market, including food packaging, are either compostable or recyclable. To learn how to green your event follow the link below.

An exchange for durable reusable bags in the community. The idea is simple enough. If you have an extra reusable bag, leave it with any participating shop or farmers market. If you need a bag, visit the exchange bin at the Farmers Markets to pick one up free of charge. If you have an extra bag, leave it in the exchange bin for someone who needs it.
