Oh Boy...Fall

So it's time for the leaves to turn, the weather to get cooler, and the food to get heartier. You look forward to new foods, techniques, and menus all year to broaden your abilities and skills.

Derek,

We are all beginning to learn how important it is for restaurants to use green products for cleaning. Restaurants are one place where cleanliness and sanitation are essential. Currently most restaurants continue to use products which are toxic to the surrounding environment and unhealthy for customers and employees. At Community Market we offer a wide range of truly green products that you will feel good about using & at a price you will appreciate!

One product is our All Purpose GREEN Cleaning spray:
One spray for all surfaces. One smart solution. This All-Purpose Cleaner whisks away grease, dirt, and grime in one shot, without a trace.

Powers away dirt, grime, and grease without streaking or dulling surfaces.
Dermatologist-tested.
No phosphates, chlorine, or other unpleasant ingredients that could harm the environment.
This is a product you, your employees & customers will appreciate! To learn more about this and other great green cleaning products, please contact us. Make sure to ask how you can buy them at wholesale price!
