Good Life Market

package free shopping

The Market

Imagine entering your local grocery store to buy a week’s worth of goods. You stock up on your morning coffee, produce, protein and daily household needs. But when you get home you realize that you also stocked up on something else: packaging. From styrofoam containers to plastics, granola bar wrappers and fruit snack individualized everything wraps-we’ve all seen how much excess waste we produce on a day-to-day basis. 

Good Life Market will be the first grocery store in Portland to sell all products unpackaged or if in packaging, compostable and reusable—in fact, almost everything in the shop will be compostable or reusable, from milk, eggs, cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables (all sourced from local farms) to many types of glass jars, kitchen and household aides, laundry accouterments, to health and beauty products like zero waste make up and bamboo toothbrushes.

 
When in Portland...
serve coffee

sustainable hospitality

If you start getting hungry while picking through the produce and amazing array of bulk snacks, goodies, and baked goods, there will be an in-house cafe that offers local coffee and espresso as well as zero waste snacks and baked items. All surplus food items will be donated to local food banks, neighbourhood houses or local community gardens.

 

The Cafe space will double as the space for the workshop and events. 

 
Workshops!

educate the community

Good Life Market's Cafe wing will double as a space after-hours for Workshops to educate people on many zero waste lifestyle tips, tricks and practical tactics. Good Life Market will have a membership option that will allow for discounts on class series as well as products in store. Some workshops will offer opportunities to learn how to make DIY products, throw zero waste dinner parties, or make zero waste kids crafts and highlight the concepts of a lean kitchen and eating seasonally.  Some of the  topics will be, but not limited to:
