Make Your Own Produce Bag Workshop

May 5 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Sunday, May 5 marks the 10th anniversary of King Farmers Market opening! We are so thankful to our vendors and shoppers who made this community happen over this last decade. As part of our celebration and as a thank you to our market-goers, we are thrilled to invite you to join The Far Woods at King on Sunday, May 5 for a FREE drop-in workshop where you’ll learn how to make your own reusable cloth produce bag! Portland Farmers Market values sustainability and reusable bags are a great way to reduce our plastic consumption at market and beyond!

Watch and learn a simple sewing process to make a drawstring bag perfect for produce shopping. Receive step-by-step instructions, gain hands-on experience, and leave with a cloth bag to use for your market shopping.

Materials will be provided. If you have a particular fabric you’d like to bring to sew into a bag, please do! One hundred percent cotton or other natural fibers cut to approximately 12”x22” will be ready to sew.

About The Far Woods:
We are sisters Sonya and Nina Montenegro, the designers and makers of The Far Woods. Our studio is situated on a small organic farm outside of Portland, Oregon.

The things we make reflect our deepest desires about the world. We seek to contribute to a great Culture Shift in which there is a land ethic, a reverence for nature, a rejection of the dominant throw-away mentality, and direct connection to where our food and the things we use come from. Many of our artworks serve as educational tools and inspiration for reconnection to nature, food, and community. Our practice crosses disciplines, including teaching handcraft skills, beekeeping, and growing food, to work toward an ecologically-viable and socially-just future.
