Both have imbued energy,glass seems to leave no poison behind,where as plastic contains plasticizers that leach,and have known environmental concerns.

Something else to consider about glass, if you're keeping these at home. Many glass containers are reusable. My mother was really excited when she found out that there is standardized information available for canning in the microwave. Basically anything that very acidic or very high sugar (water bath canning options) can be sealed in the microwave.

She reuses commercial jelly jars successfully in this fashion to extend the life of bulk salsa batches. I'm not going to reproduce the depth of research mother does, but she says it's a very well accepted technique in Australia.

My purpose is to start selling my salad dressing at local farmers market and I will make the dressing from my restaurant. Wanted to use plastic bottle but don't know much details about sterilize it before bottle. I could only find out glass bottle sterilization online.

For selling at a farmers market, I'd go with the glass jars that look like mason jars.  I think your product will have more of a "Homemade" appeal to the public. [Even though its made at your restaurant] Since the public is starting to think that plastic is unsafe and switching to glass products is another reason.
 
I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
