Let’s Party: Free Food, Music & More!

Let’s Party: Free Food, Music & More!

It’s our 40th anniversary and we’re celebrating 40 years of cooperation with a summertime party you won’t want to miss. Join us for our 40th Anniversary Block Party in the parking lot at the Co-op on Saturday, August 13 from 2 to 5 p.m.

What can you expect? Look for our local food tasting event, Taste of the Bay. We’ll have Jalapeña Nina’s pickled garlic, Spirit Creek fermented foods, Sassy Nanny goat cheeses, Happy Hollow sheep cheeses, North Wind Farm jams, Bayfield Apple Company products, Starlit Kitchen breads, Tetzner’s Dairy ice creams, and many other local foods. Stop by to sample your favorites and find some new ones.

We’ll also have a lot of free activities. There will be a Cheeky Monkey corner with all sorts of fun games and activities for kids, a dunk tank with the proceeds going to the Ashland Police Department K-9 fund, free coffee from Big Water Coffee Roasters, a lounge tent by the Red Bicycle Gift Shoppe, music by Andy Noyes & friends, 40 Prizes for 40 Years, a chance to meet local farmers, the opportunity to learn more about what’s happening at the co-op, and more. There will also be 10% off local products in the store and special food in the Deli.

Our community built this grocery store. We wouldn’t be here without the wholehearted support of people like you who shop here and who believe in our goal of providing folks with healthy, organic, and local foods. So, thank you for 40 years of helping us grow!
