Welcome to Dear Green Market, the ethical retail store based in the Space.
Dear Green Market (Formerly Dear Green Planet) is a not-for-profit social enterprise stocking a range of sustainable products, from wholefoods to natural personal care and household products.
Why come to us?
Many of the high Street products we use contain chemicals and other additives that harm us and the environment. The food we eat tends to be heavily processed with little nutritional value. As such, many of the health problems we see in today’s society can be attributed to a poor diet and products with chemicals that can irritate people. Here at Dear Green Market we offer a range of sustainable planet friendly products that also respect the living things that inhabit our world, including us.
Coronavirus (Update, 6 August)
We are now open regularly 4 days a week, Thursday – Sunday from 12 – 4pm, in our new location within the Space. For your health and safety, please wear a mask if you are visiting. If you require supplies outwith these times, please phone 07419210098 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear Green Market was set up to offer an alternative to the conventional supermarket based system. There are other shops like us in Glasgow and around the country, but maybe not enough!
Nevertheless there is plenty of evidence that people are becoming more aware of where their food and other products come from, whether its the humble potato or a mobile phone. More and more people are becoming either vegetarian or vegan out of concern for animal welfare. What about workers rights and the exploitation of workers abroad? Issues such as food waste and electronic waste also feature.
There’s an old saying, if something is too good to be true then it probably is. There also another saying, you only get what you pay for. Here at Dear Green Market, we’re open and transparent and we guarantee that you will definitely get what you pay for. And of course we hope you will become one of these!
Our website is still being developed and expanded. Please bear with us during this period.
