Our Commitment to Sustainability

New Morning Market is committed to sustainabilityfrom the ground up. In 2012, owner John Pittari tore down a defunct bowling alley and built New Morning’s fourth and final storefront using recycled materials, including those salvaged on-site, and local resources. New Morning’s polished concrete floor and pine paneling were sourced from nearby towns, and our distinct barn wood decor was reclaimed from a 1792 barn! From our environmentally conscious lighting to refrigerator coolant, we considered the ecological footprint of the store’s blueprint with every square foot. Sustainability in design even expands into New Morning’s unpaved parking lot! Rain water filters through the gravel lot and native plant border to replenish the groundwater below. This level of environmental consideration is the cornerstone of New Morning Market’s mission and is evident in everything we dofrom our community initiatives to our product offerings.
