Subject: Regarding Plastic Bags and Farmers Markets

I just had a comment and I'm not sure anyone but you and maybe your audience cares about it.

I noticed after going to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market recently and then to the Marin Civic Center Farmers Market this past Sunday that EVERY vendor and nearly EVERY shopper had huge bunches of plastic bags.

I'm thinking that if even Supermarkets are forced to stop using plastic bags, that the very first organizations that should have at least self imposed a plastic bag ban should have been these Farmers Markets. Rainbow does just fine only having paper bags.

Seriously, after a few weeks of going to the Farmers Markets and the vendors only providing the horrible no handle paper bags, I think everyone would get the point and remember to bring their own bags.

Thank you for visiting the Eater Complaints Department, your unedited platform for voicing poor dining experiences, gross restaurant trends, underhanded service issues and the like. Have grievances? Operators are standing by.
