Are you getting excited for Market season? It’s just around the corner! This year Foods of the Fundy Valley (FFV) is stepping it up with their new Green Initiatives. Not only have they been hosting a series of Climate Change workshops on a variety of topics, but for the 2019 market season they are putting it into action.
A waste sorting station will also be a new feature. Black garbage bags will no longer be going into the dumpster, but will get sorted for recycling; compost will go to the FFV School gardening program, while funds from recyclables will go to kids groups in the area.
BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag)
In attempts to minimize plastics, re-usable bags with the ‘eat. drink .shop. local’ logo will be available for purchase, along with attractive bags sewn by vendors and of course the ever-popular Hyp-bags.
Look for these exciting changes, special events and more starting May 18th at the Hillsborough Farmers Market.
