TENANT SPOTLIGHT: BARE BAZAAR

About Bare Bazaar

“I’m Kati. Hi! I’m in my thirties, married to Dave, mum to a hilarious two-year-old. I am from Tenterden and moved to Ashford in 2015 after three years in Birmingham, five in Sheffield, and four in London.”

“I launched Bare Bazaar in direct response to the media coverage of plastic pollution. I became frustrated that I was not able to shop in the way I wanted, avoiding unnecessary plastic, and soon discovered I wasn’t the only one. ¬†After lots of market research and number crunching, I was able to devise a stock list, with prices that were competitive with supermarkets, and off we went to market ourselves.”

What Bare Bazaar do

“We aren’t here to preach, and we are by no means perfect, but inspired by the shocking imagery seen in the media recently, we aim to provide plastic-free solutions to your everyday shopping needs, putting the power in your hands to say no to plastic. We provide food that is safe, high quality and ultimately affordable.”

“I’m not a vegetarian or a vegan, more of a flexitarian if you will, but Bare Bazaar will sell vegan-friendly products, including our household and toiletries ranges.”

Buying unpackaged means your bin doesn’t fill up so quickly, but it also means you don’t get labels on your product – if you ever want to know more about the ingredients in a product, or where it’s from, just ask! Visit their store page to view their opening hours here.
