For several years the Co-op has been working to develop relationships with local farmers and to support agricultural development in our community. Three of them will be putting their food kiosks in front of the Co-op this summer to provide a local market in our neighbourhood. We’re hoping this will create some momentum for our farmers and foster the community spirit we often miss.
Working with and supporting local organic farmers is something we don’t see enough of in our fine city, even though the tradition dates back many decades. The Co-op is truly proud to keep this valued relationship and connectedness to our food alive. If you or someone you love runs an organic (even uncertified) farm, there is an open spot in our market rotation (Friday afternoons). We also are always looking for even more fresh local products to sell in the store, so if you're staring at a bin of market surplus, trying to find a place to sell your veggies for the summer or have a hot tip on a farm we should work with, give us a call or shoot Amie an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
