Local foods

Our product mix includes good things from close to home like Dean’s Beans coffee (Orange), free-range eggs from Margot’s Eggs (Athol), organic meat from The Farm School (Athol), chicken from Diemand Farm (Wendell), and seasonal bounty like greens and other veggies from Seeds of Solidarity Farm (Orange) and Coolidge Hill Farm (New Salem).

We also stock dairy, honey, maple syrup, flour and grains, and much more from food producers around our area, including great items from other New England co-ops. You’ll find Bart’s Ice Cream and Katalyst Kombucha from Greenfield, sausages and bacon from Crooked Creek Hollow Farm in Richmond, NH, organic, non-GMO tortillas from Mi Tierra in Hadley, and much more.

Our inventory changes from month to month, with many specialty items from nearby producers and some that come to us from suppliers like Marty’s Local, a family-owned distributor connecting producers and markets around central New England and New York’s Hudson Valley. We’re excited to partner with Marty’s and many others who are working to rebuild the kind of local food networks that fed our part of the world until just a few decades ago.
