We focus on local! In our fiscal year 2019, 29.4% of our purchases were made locally*, distributing $407,000 back into our community. The National Cooperative Grocers Association’s goal for local purchasing is 25% by 2020; by prioritizing purchasing from our own New England farmers, producers, and artisans, we are already well over that goal!
From body care to baked goods, fresh fruit to frozen treats, we encourage our shoppers to choose local when given the opportunity. Browse our list of our Vermont vendors and producers below, and look for these green signs throughout the store to find more locally made products you’ll love!
*Local is defined as within a 90 mile radius of the Co-op.
