Feature: Cranberries

Cranberries…the name comes from “cranberry,” used to describe how the plant’s looks, especially when flowering, look like a crane. Other names for this fruit bearing plant have included fenberry (traditional English), and mossberry (from Canada). Regardless the name, the cranberry is making its way into your grocer’s aisles this time of year. We’ve posted a yummy Cranberry Applesauce recipe on our website — let the color and great taste win over all your holiday guests! Read More

Where Will The Co-op Be?

Launching a food co-op is not an easy task. Efforts in recent years throughout the U.S. have averaged 4-5 years from idea to the opening of the store. “Where will the Co-op be?” is probably the question we get the most.  (“When will you open?” is another common question!)  Now in our third year of planning we’ll begin the efforts of securing a location for the co-op. Read more about the answer to this and other Frequently Asked Questions on our new website.

Were  You There?

If you missed the successful launch party in October don’t worry… you can get a glimpse at all the fun that was had.  Check out the photo gallery of pictures from the Fall Food Fest.
