Where do you see the Concord Food Co-op in the future?
The Co-op staff have been thinking out of the box! With the recent acquisition of Cafe Indigo on Hall Street in Concord – now called The Co-op Bakehouse – the Co-op staff see that the Co-op has limitless possibilities with the enthusiasm of our General Manager, Paula Harris, guiding us. Some of us have been here long enough to have witness multiple Concord store expansions, purchasing our Concord building, and the start of our New London store. We’re constantly chatting with our fellow member-owners and customers and listen to their requests. This inspires us to keep thinking outside the box for the Co-op’s future. And, in this case, that means thinking outside the building!

So, could the Co-op’s very own farm be in our future? A place to cater gorgeous weddings with our very own catered meals? State-of-the-art classrooms to support classes large and small, including hands-on cooking workshops? Teaching gardens, kids day camps, and a place to grow our very own organic veggies, raise chickens for eggs, bees for honey, goats for milk and cheese? A smokehouse and brick bread oven? CSA shares?
We want to know what you think? Do you agree that a farm is the ideal next step for the Co-op? Or do you see something entirely different? What matters most to you?
