Are you looking for something new to try? Do you wonder how to use the products available through the Macomb Online Market? The Macomb Food Co-op has featured many wonderful recipes on its blog and in its newsletter over the past several years. To see all of them, including the recipe for Potimarron Squash Soup below, visit: http://macombfoodcoop.net/category/recipes/
The Macomb Food Co-op is dedicated to opening a store that will sell local and regional fresh food and locally-produced items. Until that is a reality, we have developed a weekly Online Market that connects producers to consumers and keeps us on track for achieving our end goal of having a store. The Online Market has increased our Co-op ownership and has allowed us to develop working relationships with local producers.
The Market is open for shopping each week from 6 pm Friday until 9 am Monday. Orders need to be placed during the weekend. Access the Market by clicking on the Shop Online This Weekend link in the upper right of this page.
A community member may shop as our guest for one month. After that, he or she will need to join the Co-op by purchasing a $100 owner share; an installment payment plan is available. Owner forms can be downloaded at the Become an Owner link on the menu bar above or can be picked up at our office in Pumo Insurance, 19 E. Side Square, Macomb.
If you would like to volunteer on a Co-op committee or at the Online Market distribution, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 309.255.5572 or 309.255.5094.
