Eco Now and Packing District presents 2nd Annual Mother Earth Market
For the second year, a neighborhood zero-waste shop, Eco Now, will team up with Anaheim’s historic Packing District to host “Mother Earth Market,” (MEM) a mindfulness event, along the shady boardwalk and green at Farmers Park on Saturday, September 17, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Loaded with free events, the day will begin with a community clean-up organized by Green Bird Anaheim at 9 a.m., starting at Center Street’s Eco Now, and landing at the event site within Farmers Park. Volunteers who join the flash mob will receive a stamp redeemable for deals at local merchants including Eco Now and ADYA.
Early birds can partake in a complimentary yoga class at 10 a.m. by legendary vinyasa flow instructor, Kumi Yogini, to set the tone of mindfulness before a full lineup of music, classes, and workshops. The vendor village will be open 11 a.m.-4 p.m., where people can shop for eco-friendly products, ask questions about zero-waste living and even learn about vermicomposting. A clothing swap and Q&A with local business, Everywhere, will highlight the day as means to provide sustainable solutions and education on fashion consumerism.
