July will also mark the first full month of our brand new Composting Program at the market. Please help us with our efforts to reduce our waste stream at the market. Before you throw something in the trash ask yourself, “Is this recyclable or compostable?”, if so please toss any waste in the appropriate bins. We would like to thank our composting partner Giving Tree Gardens and Hennepin County Master Composters for working with us, and Welna Ace Hardware for their in-kind sponsorship.
