Have you heard about the efforts to bring a full-service, consumer-owned grocery store to the Fargo/Moorhead area? Prairie Roots Food Co-op is a cooperative dedicated to doing just that.
A food coop store will make it more convenient for farmers (like us!) and consumers to meet in one place.
Grow Local. Eat Local. Support our Local Producers. We like the sound of that because it is good for the local economy and good for our health, too.
Do you want to hear more? GrassStain Farm is hosting an event for you to hear a short (like 10 minutes or so) presentation about the Prairie Roots Coop and ask questions and find out about membership.
AND...the Petry Pickers family bluegrass band will entertain while you eat cookies and drink coffee/apple cider and visit with other GrassStain Farm people.
We are very excited about this food coop coming to town, and we think you might be, too.
If you live in the FM area, you'll want to attend this fun event: Tuesday, Nov 27th at Salem EFC East Campus (fellowship hall) on 30th Ave S, Moorhead (east of Speak Easy) at 7pm.
