Using The Green Piece is always FREE!


This program is temporarily suspended. You can now ask for a reusable food container at various eateries in Union Street Market and Market Cafe! Simply ask your server for the reusable container at the food station of your choice and they will prepare your food in a clean, sanitized, reusable container. After eating, place your used container into the labeled bin located inside the USM near the Tostada Grill.

Customers who use a Green Piece will receive their product in a clean, sanitized to-go container. The reusable containers have been designed for repeated use and are dishwasher safe. When a customer is finished with their meal they return the container to the designated drop off bin located at the front of the Union Street Market servery or to any cashier. Then our staff brings the used containers to our dish area where it is cleaned and sanitized in our dish machine like all of our cooking and serving equipment. The clean and sanitized container then is stocked at the stations for service.

Each container is made of 100% BPA free polypropylene, incorporated with Microban and is NSF approved.
