We Aim to Be a Low-Waste Market

Please bring your reusable tote bags. If you forget your bags, we have a “Take a Bag, Leave a Bag” box by the manager’s booth and will also be selling our “Topanga Farmers Market” totes, French market bags and produce bags. Vendors will not be supplying plastic bags, but some will have paper bags. Feel free to bring your extra paper grocery bags or tote bags you would like to donate to the “Take a Bag, Leave a Bag” box. This is a work in progress, please let us know if you have ideas on how our market can produce less waste!
