If you’ve popped into the Otago Farmers Market recently, you may have spotted a new addition. They have a brand new market kitchen and site office!
Beside all this bright shiny goodness, you’ll see the market cup library, to help the on-site vendors reduce the phenomenal number of disposable cups they give out each market, and our awesome bag library!
One-month on from the launch of the library, the bags are going (and coming back) well! We’ve had fantastic response from stall holders, who now don’t have to struggle to independently source shopping bags that match their ethos, or miss out when people come to them late in their shop with already-full bags.
Shoppers too love the practicality of our bags, with the size, strap length and strength being ‘just right’. Plus, they don't need to add to their already sizable stash of bags, they can use them when they need them and bring them back!
If you find yourself needing one, please take photos of your bags adventures and share them on our facebook or instagram pages!
