Borrow-A-Bag Bring-A-Bag program starts at Del Mar Farmers Market

In an ongoing effort to reduce waste at the Del Mar Farmers Market, a simple, yet effective way to reuse market bags is being adopted.

Beginning Saturday, Jan. 28, those with excess shopping bags will be able to donate the bags to the “Borrow-a-Bag Bring-a-Bag” bin that will be located at the market manager’s table. The concept is simple: if you have extra, clean, sturdy bags, preferably with handles, you can “bring” them to the market. Then someone else who needs a bag will “borrow” a bag and “bring” it back the next time they shop at the market.

Along with more vigilant recycling efforts, this program will be part of an increased effort to limit the market’s waste stream. So, look around your house for all those bags and “bring” them to the market and someone else will gratefully “borrow” them. The Del Mar Farmers Market is held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Saturday in the City Hall parking lot between 10th and 11th Streets. For more information, go to
