We are committed to providing sustainable products and services that protect our natural resources. When possible, we purchase locally grown and sustainable foods from our vendors.
Why locally grown and seasonal?
We believe in supporting local farmers. Purchasing locally also provides fresher foods, which means better tasting, and limits environmental impact by reducing transportation distance.
What do you mean by local?
We try our hardest to purchase local foods when possible in an effort to provide fresher, better tasting foods and limit our environmental impact by reducing transportation distance.
- Items must be grown, raised or caught within a 250 mile radius.
- If it's processed food, it must contain at least 50% local ingredients.
Cage-free Eggs Policy
To support local farmers and anti-cruelty initiatives, the Market Places purchase cage-free eggs locally. The hens that lay these eggs are allowed roam to roam instead of being enclosed in cramped cages.
