Supporting our community
Since 1982, Twain Harte Market has been committed to supporting our community. We focus our giving on local non-profit organizations and educational institutions that are located in our immediate community. Organizations like Habitat for Humanity, ATCAA Food Bank, 4H, Center for a non-violent Community, Meals on Wheels and many others have been included in our giving every year.

At the store, Twain Harte Market is proud to sponsor the See’s Candy sales for the Soroptimists of Twain Harte. The proceeds from these sales are used for their scholarship program.
Preserving our
Reducing our impact

Twain Harte Market is passionately committed to recycling and reducing waste. We are constantly looking at ways of diverting waste from the land fill and redirecting the waste to reusable products.

We reuse our pallets with a return program to our vendors. We recycle up to 75 pallets every week.

In addition, we have been working hard at reducing our own carbon footprint. Since, 2010, we have cut our energy bill in half. We have done this by installing a computerized energy management system and changing our lighting inside the store.

Local partners

We have worked hard to extend our green reach beyond our own company to that of our suppliers. For many years, we have consolidated shipments from multiple vendors in the bay area. So instead of four or five trucks driving up the hill, there is only one.

Utilizing local vendors is another way Twain Harte Market reduces our carbon footprint. We like to include local vendors from Tuolumne, Calaveras, and Amador County in our store whenever we can. Examples are: Cover’s,  Calaveras Olive Oil, Murphy’s Mustard, Sciabica’s Olive Oil, Hippie Stix, Dambacher Farms, Buzzbees Honey, Tuolumne Honey Company, Indigeny and many others. Twain Harte Market carries the largest selection of local wines in our county.

Resuseable bags

Twain Harte Market encourages customers to bring their own reusable bags when shopping with us. Currently, we offer two different styles of Twain Harte Market logo bags for purchase.
