I always take a cotton bag to the market with me but today I shopped too much and unfortunately I had to use a few plastic bags to carry everything back home. Since we already have a huge plastic problem I think it is even more important to think about where your products come from and how the farmers grow their plants and vegetables. The farmers market at Rockefeller Center also offers honey and maple syrup in glass containers, which is one reason why I always go back to this particular place. The city offers a couple of markets and the one located at Rockefeller Center is a smaller one and the atmosphere is less stressful compared to the biggest market at Union Square. I even tried maple ginger lemon beer this time and I liked it a lot, the flavor was delicious – the list of ingredients was not endless and did not contain anything unhealthy.
