So what do we mean by “package-free”?

You do you

How does it work?

We want to make your life easier, not harder! So even though you won’t find single-use packaging in our store, there are two ways you can fill up on our goodies!

BYOC: Bring Your Own Container

Bring any container you’d like; we don’t discriminate!

Ziplock bag? Yup.
Wine bottle? Certainly.
Beeswax wrap? BOOM.
Yogurt container? Check!

As long as it’s clean, dry and unchipped, you can use it to refill your favourite food, body care and household products in-store.

Forget Something?

Forgot your container at home? Don’t sweat it. Join our Bare Container-Lending Program because sharing is caring! Join the program to use one of our Bare Containers for a small, 100% refundable deposit. Bring it back next time, and you’ll get your money back! We also have paper bags to use and an abundant collection of bottles, jars and cloth bags available for purchase.

Follow our 4 easy steps to bare it all:

Prep Time

Get bare-ready; weigh your container of choice and jot down the weight on one of our reusable tags (psst, the cool kids call this ‘taring’).

Fill ‘em Up

Stock your container with as much or as little as you’d like (wahoo!) and then write the product code on the tag.

Cha-ching

Head to the cash, where we’ll weigh your goodies. We’ll subtract the weight of your container so you’re only charged for what you’re buying.

Happy Dance

Optional, but highly encouraged! You just saved money, reduced waste, and supported local and sustainable producers. Celebrate how you see fit.

We’ve Got It All

Bare Market is your plastic-free, one-stop shop. Wondering exactly what's at Bare? At our pop-up markets you can expect to find refillable, bulk, locally and/or sustainably sourced body care, DIY ingredients, home care and food items. We work with our pals at The Eco Well who review the claims and ingredients of every single body care product and home cleaner we source to ensure they are safe for you and safe for the planet. We do the research so you don't have to. 

Body Care

We’ve got the good stuff! Think shampoo, body lotion, makeup and bubble bath. Ahhhhhhh, soak that up!

DIY ingredients

From your essential oils, butters and minerals to carrier oils, extracts and clays. We’ve got what you need to make your lotions and potions, you witchy vixens, you!

Home Care

Our home products include laundry detergent, bamboo toothbrushes, non-plastic cleaning equipment, eco-friendly toys, and so much more! Yipeeee.

Food

We got your regular old bulk dry foods like nuts, seeds, beans, grains, pastas, rice, flours, cereals, oils, vinegars, sweeteners, spices, superfoods, candies, dried fruit and veggies, coffee, tea and condiments. We also carry bulk cheese, dairy products, proteins, and ready-to-go prepared foods made right here in the GTA. Think hummus, coconut yogurt and tofu (for our meatless and vegan buds). No, your stomach's growling!

Have a product that you think we should be stocking?

We’re always on the lookout for new local, sustainable and ethical products and brands.
