In June of 2009, we officially opened Concord Food Co-op of New London (previously called “13 Carrots” by past owners), a Lake Sunapee-area sister store of the Co-op.

The Best Natural & Organic Products
The New London store offers seasonal local produce from Muster Field Farm in Sutton, and from other local vendors whenever possible. In addition, fresh deliveries of organic fruits and veggies are received several times throughout the week. The selection varies from season to season. The Co-op strives to support our local farmers and provide quality produce to our local community. As an example, you can even find your favorite Micro Mama’s fermented veggies at the New London store!
Perusing the grocery aisles, you’ll find a large variety of natural, organic, non-GMO, and allergy-sensitive goods. You can stock your cart with soups and canned goods; sauces, dressings, and oils; nuts, cookies, and chips (and of course salsa); baking items, ready-to-cook meals, sodas and juices, and much more from quality brands like Field Day, Woodstock, Annie’s, and Spectrum .
The meat and dairy aisles feature your favorites from Applegate Natural & Organic Meats, Misty Knolls Farms, milk from Huckins Farms, Earth Balance spreads, Organic Valley cheeses, and numerous dairy-free alternatives. Don’t forget to pick up fresh, local eggs while you’re in!
