Sustainability is also a key component of the new location.
Customers will find a labelled and accessible compost and recycling area to reduce waste. In addition to in-house food waste composting, the Walnut Grove Fresh St. Market joins other locations in their work with food recovery program, FoodMesh, which diverts surplus food to charitable organizations to be used for meals within the Langley community.
“This destination brings a market-like experience to those who live in and around the Fraser Valley who also enjoy supporting local farmers and producers,” Mark McCurdy, vice president, retail operations and brand strategy, Fresh St. Market, said in a statement. “Langley and neighbouring communities in the Fraser Valley have long been known for rich agricultural produce and food.”
