How are we going to do this?

August Manager's Message

Summer is quickly coming to an end, but we’ve been working hard in-store to prepare everyone for “Back-to-School Fun”! Are you ready?

July Manager's Message

Independence Day celebrations, fireworks, and cook outs are now on the very near horizon and nothing says summer-time like fresh corn, watermelons and peaches, all of which are found right here at your local food co-op.  So far, for June we have seen a total of 6% growth over last year’s sales. This means that more people are shopping at the co-op; more people are showing their support for local farms and or…
