Hello Cooperators!

First things first--I want to thank all of our owners and customers who come into Common Ground and take some time to show their appreciation to our staff for being here. It means so much to all of us that we are acknowledged for the daily risk we take just by showing up for work. I want to give special thanks to those who were encouraging our staff even before COVID-19 came to our country.

The Effects of Shopping Local On Your Friends & Neighbors

Small local farms and businesses are excellent for the economy because they create jobs. By supporting local producers, you contribute to helping your friends, neighbors and other community members find sustainable employment. In addition, they often develop a close network between themselves, and their local buyers. This builds relationships among community members, which fosters a sense of belonging and togetherness within the community.
