We now have a new permanent store manager, Sandy. Welcome Sandy! Sandy is also a heck of a soup person and hopes to bring convenient, nutritious and delicious, homemade soups to our store. What goes better with soup than a rustic loaf of wood-fired oven baked bread? Fresh bread arrives in our store every Friday just in time for the weekend. Sprouted and gluten-free frozen bread options are always available. Member-owners take advantage of our Bread Buying Club!
Another new face in our store belongs to Dez. Dez is also helping to set up and streamline all our procedures. A big welcome to Dez!
And just because the winter season is fast approaching doesn't mean our member-owners won't have access to great produce — fresh, organic vegetables and fruits are available to order through Grindstone Farm. Our store will also carry fresh, organic produce ALL YEAR LONG as local as we can get it.
See you at the Co-op!
