Natural Awakenings San Diego

No More Plastic Bags

The Encinitas Station Certified Farmer's Market is under new management. Carris Rhodes, a local community member and former program assistant at the Downtown Encinitas MainStreet Association (DEMA), will now manage the Wednesday evening market.

The Market is making a New Year’s resolution to go single use plastic bag free and will get a head start on their resolution by participating in “Day Without A Bag,” a county-wide event dedicated to raising awareness and going plastic bag free. DEMA will partner with other downtown merchants to pass out re-usable bags to customers throughout the month of January.

In addition, Rhodes is also working with Whole Foods to bring foodie films to Pacific Station on Wednesday evenings. She is also meeting with local chefs to get farmer's market produce and special farmer's market creations on their menu for Wednesday evenings. The market will also feature more organic produce vendors in 2013 and will have quarterly special events like food demos and market tours.  

Rhodes' goal is to integrate the farmer's market into the Wednesday evening culture and everyday lives of all who visit and live near Downtown Encinitas.
