Local Farms and Producers

Special COVID-19 Directory

Helping the Local Economy

Being a community-oriented business, the Co-op doesn't just partner with local farms and food producers -- it also promotes them.  The Great River Co-op strives to establish great relationships with our local farmers and  friends and to help  them to thrive.

 

The COVID-19 virus and shelter-in-place orders have created challenges for everyone in our community. The Great River Co-op physical store location is still in the works, but in the mean time we are committed to upholding our values and doing what we can to help our local producers and the community right now. We feel the most immediate way we can help is to provide connections between our local producers and the community.  

 

We have created the directory below of local producers that are open and serving the community. Please help support our local economy and patronize these vendors. Help us all get through this together!

 

If you would like to be added to this list, please fill out the questionnaire below:
