A contemporary spin on the farmer's market

My friend Alexandre Van Beeck, mentioned in his blog a cool retail concept in London called Unpackaged Stores. Since I was in town, I decided to check it out. They sell all things organic, from produce to muesli, in an eco-friendly way. Because the concept is around sustainability, customers must bring their own bags for their purchases. A contemporary spin on the traditional farmer's market. It's fascinating to see how sometimes you need to look at the past to find ideas for a better future.

Nada melhor do que vivenciar o que lemos e pesquisamos! Quando puder, queria ver (e aprender) um pouco mais sobre sua visita.
