We are a cooperative business, the first of our kind in Western Maryland. We opened the doors to our retail grocery store in September 2018, the same month we were awarded a major grant from the USDA through their Local Food Promotion Program.
We are committed to our mission of expanding market opportunities for local farmers, increasing access to affordable, locally grown food, and generating jobs and revenue streams for our local economy.
We currently work with over 20 local farmers and vendors to stock their products in our store. We also use as much local food as possible in our To-Go foods.
We are working towards renting out our commercial kitchen to support local farmers and to help innovative entrepreneurs.
Together, we are pioneering new ways of approaching local food issues at our cooperatively-owned grocery store.
