I recently discovered Abe’s Market, which touts itself as a combination of Etsy and Whole Foods, a one stop place online to get all of your natural shopping needs. Poking around, I definitely agree!! You can find socks, flip flops, body products, home decor and kitchen accessories and so much more, in one place!
One notable feature of Abe’s Market is that you can find out the origin and story behind each product on the site before you buy- so you can be sure you know where the products you are purchasing are coming from!! This isn’t always easy to discern, especially online, so its a feature that makes me happy.
Follow Abe’s Market on Facebook for all the latest and greatest product information, green living tips and ideas, and any sales or feature products!
Don’t forget to use you the special one-time only discount code made especially for This Mama Loves Her Bargains readers “ENB-22mgwk” at checkout for $10 off a $30 purchase or more!
Abe’s offers a series of videos that serve to educate us about different green living topics and products- like this video about Local Honey:
ABOUT ABE’S MARKET
For a long time co-founders Richard Demb and Jon Polin talked about starting a business that they’d feel great about – a business that is wonderful for both businesses and consumers and that would have a positive impact on the environment. As natural product enthusiasts, they envisioned a place that would enable shoppers to discover fantastic, hard-to-find products and to really connect with the product creators – the way markets were once run.
WHO IS ABE?
Abe is co-founder Jon Polin’s Grandpa Abe. By all accounts, Grandpa Abe was an honest, hard-working man. A pharmacist, for 50 years he owned and operated the eponymous Polin Drugs, a neighborhood drug store, on the West side of Chicago. Beyond being a loving husband and father, Abe represented two things in his community. First, as the neighborhood pharmacist, he was the purveyor of health and wellness solutions to all his customers. Second, as proprietor of the neighborhood pharmacy, Grandpa Abe represented the classic mom-and-pop business fueled by hard work, great products, great service, honesty, trust and passion. During the Great Depression, when many people couldn’t afford to see doctors, and again during World War II, when there was a shortage of available doctors, Grandpa Abe was especially busy, offering free “medical” advice to his local customers. 9:00 to 5:00? Not for Grandpa Abe. For most of its 50 years, Polin Drugs was open 9AM to midnight. Only in its last few years did Grandpa Abe start to close his shop early – at 11PM. And, of course, Grandpa Abe knew his customers by name, and he knew exactly which cold capsules Mrs. Sandberg preferred and which medicine to deliver when Mr. Banks was having one of his migraines.
Abe’s Market is about combining the best things that Grandpa Abe represented – health and wellness, mom and pop, reliability, trust, honesty, community and personal connection between business owners and customers.
