Glen's Garden Market is a retail experience that captures her vision for an everyday farmer’s market. Looking to historic urban markets for inspiration, the long display tables in the “grocery” area of the store are reminiscent of antique markets or home goods retailers.
The store itself was constructed using sustainable building materials as well as highly efficient lighting, refrigeration and cooking equipment. Additionally, doors have been installed on the service cases to avoid wasting refrigerant. The bar itself is made of recycled paper.
Consistent with the store’s environmental focus, minimizing waste is a priority at Glen’s Garden Market. No paper or plastic is available at check out and used only as absolutely required in other areas of the store. The store offers only reusable bags made from recycled content. Additionally, the store separates out compostable materials from garbage and recycling and provides it back to local farmers to complete the composting process and use as fertile soil in their fields.
