I would say the bag issue would be the same for the farm stand as the farmers’ market. As long as the farm staff does not touch or handle the shopper’s bag, or load the purchased items for the shopper it would be ok (the shopper bags their own). The shopper needs to understand this and any individual items purchased that need to be bagged (multiple of items), would have to be bagged in single use bags.
Howard mentioned that reuseables can be filthy, and there can be an element of truth to that if folks (l ike me in the past) dont wash their cloth bags rregularly . But we are still offering single use packaging if they want, and prepackaging as well, but those folks whom want to participate in waste stream managemnt would be allowed to, and would be a significant saving all around if we dont have to supply single direction boxes from the counter to the car
