We accept up to 5 jars at a time. All jars/bottles/containers must be clean and have a matching lid. We cannot accept any jars or bottles with pumps or droppers as they are difficult to clean.

We cannot accept any pasta sauce, salsa, pickle jars, or any jars from other highly fermented foods as they hold the scent.

All donations must be submitted to a Tare Market associate. Our staff inspect the jars to make sure they fit our requirements, then we wash and sanitize each container before adding it to our kiosk.

Examples of donations we love: mason jars, plastic yogurt containers, nut butter jars, Talenti gelato containers, kombucha bottles.
