Food & Drink Tastings

Co-op owner appreciation week is a time to celebrate being a community-owned store with special food and drink tastings for you.  Our owners also enjoy 10% off a shopping trip.  Not an owner?  It’s easy to join and your $200 share can be paid in annual $25 increments.  Ownership can pay for itself with the savings of just one shopping trip during owner appreciation week!
