The store showcases foods grown or created by farmers and artisans in DC, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York.
The store itself was constructed using sustainable building materials as well as highly efficient lighting, refrigeration and cooking equipment. Additionally, doors have been installed on the service cases to avoid wasting refrigerant. The bar itself is made of recycled paper. Consistent with the store’s environmental focus, minimizing waste is a priority at Glen’s Garden Market. No paper or plastic is available at check out and used only as absolutely required in other areas of the store. The store offers only reusable bags made from recycled content.
