The Community Cooperative
The folks at the Greenhouse Grocery believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of high quality, nutritious food. An engaged and empowering community, the Coop encourages the adoption of healthy diets and seeks to serve the entire community by linking people, markets, farmers, artisans and investors. It increases access to fresh, local food through affordable pricing and a convenient, central location.
