Poppy’s Greengrocer is offering consumers super friendly service AND greatly reduced packaging. Like us, Poppy’s has had it with plastics! Many of its items come container and package-free while others come in reusable and returnable ones. Further, Poppy’s is working closely with small, local farmers, including offering them an equity stake in the business. Poppy’s will be sharing its story as it goes in hopes that others will emulate its model.
Entrepreneur Jen Brodsky was a farmer and is now a consultant to farmers. She has pondered a grocery model to benefit farmers for quite some time and came up with Poppy’s, named for her grandfather!
