So just a few new items this week. We are pleased to welcome to our shelves items from Nubik Ranch in Sangerville(Organic Land). The selection that we received from them is;
- 18oz Raw Honey
- 12oz Raw Honey
- 2.25oz Raw Honey
- 8oz Maple Syrup
- Ground Lamb
We also brought in a few limited supply items to have on hand if anyone needs them for the upcoming holiday.
As always if there is something you’d like to see on the shelf just let us know and we’ll do our best to get it!
If you haven’t heard already Ralph’s Cafe is now back open for the season which means the Co-op will now be getting back into the local pastry game again. We apologize that we’ve been struggling to have local pastries on hand through the winter (thanks to Little Lads for keeping us in tarts at least). We should be getting muffins on Tuesday or Wednesday and donuts on Thursdays.
We are also pleased to announce that Toddy Pond Yogurt will be back in stock by the end of the day. Their herd is back in production!
It looks like we aren’t out of the woods just yet for winter time and due to road conditions this afternoon we will be shutting down early at 4pm. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we want our staff/volunteers to be safe getting home. Pending unforeseen circumstances we should be reopen tomorrow at our normal time.
Just a quick reminder that all orders for the Fedco Potato order are due in Friday the 5th by Noon. We are currently at the 5% discount level and we are short by only $73.00 to get the 10% discount so get your orders in now!
A few of our volunteer board members gave up their Sunday morning today to move items in the craft and seating areas to try and make them both more visible and inviting for summer time. We think it looks pretty darn good so let us know what you think!
We also wanted to let you know that as of tomorrow April 1st our Round-Up Recipient will be the Jackson Fire Department!
So we have a few new items again this week and we are also trying something new with our Lettuce/Salad Mix. As many of you know we’ve struggled with figuring out a way to provide folks greens without plastic packaging but due to the nature of our cooling system and long term storage needs we haven’t been able to move past plastic bags. We’ve found a new kind of container which supposedly helps regulate the gases and humidity in the container to keep produce in a better condition longer so we thought we’d give it a try. So far it’s been in the walkin for about 5 days and the greens still look pretty good so hopefully we’ll be able to continue long term with having both bagged and bulked for folks depending upon how they’d prefer it.
And now on to the new items for this week, also pictured is the new Co-op Kiosk that our tireless Board President & Secretary and several volunteers have worked on!
- Bulk Whole Ancho Chilis
- Color Kitchen Natural Food Coloring (Non-GMO, GF)
- Olive Wood Spatulas
- Common Good Unscented Dish Soap (we had this a long time ago but it’s been out of stock for forever)
- Maggie’s Organics Beekeeper Socks
- Stepware Insulated Tea Brewing Tumbler
- Dark Horse Pinot Grigio in a 375ml Can
- Artista Strawberry Margarita (Org)
In a sure sign that the snow is melting (yeah mud season….) and the days are getting longer the Marsh River Cooperative is pleased to be hosting our yearly Pysanky Easter Egg Decorating workshop with Lesia!
