Reduce: At Leighton Buzzard Market we always promote the positive message of shopping local, and at the market can help you reduce your travel, as well as help to support our local economy.

Re-use: A selection of traders already use recycled jars for their produce. In addition, many of our traders are happy for you to fill your own jars, bags and boxes. Please don’t be shy in bringing cartons, jars, etc., from home and asking traders to use them

Recycle: We have introduced a crisp packet recycling scheme. You will find the recycling bin near the pet stall on a Tuesday and Saturday Market Day (but not when it is too windy or wet).
