About Us……

Our Mission:

  • To sell local food whenever possible so as to celebrate and support our fantastic farming community.
  • To augment our local food selection with an array of staples and quality organic goods so that those in our community can shop close to home.
  • To put our customers first and to grow as we learn their needs.
  • To promote through education the benefits of sustainable farming and the joy and health of eating “real” food in season.
  • To build community and local economic opportunities in ways that are apolitical and welcoming to all.
  • To provide a great work environment, learn lots, have fun, and last, but not least, to eat well!
