Portland Farmers Market Vendors to Begin Using Reusable Dishware

Monday, July 27, 2015

 

The Portland Farmers Market has announced that vendors at the Portland State University, King, Northwest, Buckman and Kenton markets will be replacing compostable dishware, which often lands in waste bins marked for landfill with reusable dishes and silverware. This shift will commence at the start of this year’s market season. 

This change is occurring because the City of Portland recently changed their commercial composting rules to disallow non-food waste. Due to this switch, landfill output at the PSU market has already been reduced by more than half. The average of 25 bags of garbage has decreased to 9.

“It’s not the easiest way to do things, but it’s definitely the right way,” says Michael Martinez, owner of Enchanted Sun Breakfast Burritos and ten-year market vendor. “We’re excited to lead the way to shift the market mindset from disposable to durable. It provides an improved dining experience for our customers, sets an example for markets across the nation, and is cost-effective for vendors in the long run.”

Throughout the upcoming market season, market-goers will be able to return their dishware to specifically marked bins at dirty dish stations. At these stations, customers can also find compost, recycling and waste receptacles.
