Re: Glass or plastic bottles for farmers markets and USPS shipping
I have noticed that too. And then I put honey in Gamber's one pound Invert container and those who prefered glass for eco reasons started buying plastic for convenience reasons. I'm selling more of the one pound inverts than I am the glass one pounds.
