Herb Packaging Help

Hello

I am looking at selling my herbs at my local Farmer's Market and some small grocery stores in the area.
But I don't know how to package them.
Was wondering if you could share how you sell your herbs?

I did see herbs in the big chain grocery stores selling them in plastic containers.

Would love to know where to get this type of packaging.

Thanks for sharing!

Heidi

For fresh market direct to the customer you can go as simple as rubber banding together 7 to 10 stems.

For packaging for stores I have used ziplock bags with a decent looking lable on the bag.Works well and is reasonably cheap.

Monte packaging should have the plastic containers but such an expensive container will cut deeply into your bottom line.
