Reuasble Bag Drive for Crossroads Community Farmers Market
Did you know that Crossroads Farmers Market was the first market in Maryland to accept federal nutrition benefits and the first in the country to launch a “double dollar” incentive program to match the value of these benefits spent at the market? Eligible shoppers are able to stretch their buying power to bring home more fresh fruits and vegetables, and at the same time support local farmers and vendors—three quarters of whom are immigrants themselves.

Haven't been to the market yourself yet? GO! It's amazing. Learn more here: https://www.crossroadscommunityfoodnetwork.org/farmers-market/

If you’ve shopped in Takoma Park in the past two years you likely noticed that The City of Takoma Park has banned the use of single-use, point of sale, plastic bags within the boundaries of the City of Takoma Park. Farmers Markets were exempt from this ban until December 2017. While compostable bags are acceptable to distribute, they cost 10 times that of the traditional plastic bag. It was clear that this was an opportunity for Silver Spring Cares!

Perhaps you have tons of reusable bags lying around not being used. Or, you've been saving paper bags from the grocery store just in case. Now is the perfect time to cull your collection for a great cause! We’ll even come and pick them and deliver directly to the farmers to use in lieu of plastic! Everyone wins!

Simply sign up here. On Mondays from April 29th - May 20th, we'll swing by to pick them up and deliver to the market.

Want to volunteer to pick up bags or serve as a neighborhood/workplace drop off point to help us save time driving around? Let us know – email Heather@SilverSpringCares.org for more information.

Thanks for helping make Silver Spring thrive!
