Supporting Your Local Market - How To Shop Sustainably by Sophie Kovic

One of my favourite parts of the week is to get to the local Farmers Market.  These thriving local communities are good for your soul, your hip pocket & your health. The less miles our food can travel the better, right? 

Sophie Kovic Seed & Sprout Farmers Market Set

A big part of our DNA at Seed & Sprout is problem solving.  It seems like sooo long ago that we developed the very first concepts that became Farmers Market Set.  This came from my own need for a more sustainable option.  This was back when supermarkets were still using plastic bags!!   

The idea was simple; it needed to be versatile, durable & design led.   Humble brag, ummm we nailed it!  6 years later it's still one of our top selling products.  I still get a lil proud mumma moment when I see one of our bags at the market.

Never pick up a plastic bag at the fruit & vegetable section again. Our plastic-free shopping journey began here, with these humble cotton mesh bags. Our GOTS Certified Organic Mesh Produce Bags come in 5 assorted sizes for separating out your cherry tomatoes from your bananas & your apples from your broccoli.

Our Bulk Food Bags have been a customer favourite!  We love these bulk food bags as they're a multitasking planet friendly alternative to single use plastics! You get a range of sizes (4 bags, complete with volume label )for all of your bulk shopping needs, we love them for herbs, loose fruit & veggies, breads & nuts & they're especially good for powders or seeds that would otherwise slip through a mesh bag.
