Upstate Food Co-Op Hosts Special Holiday Event
The Upstate Food Co-op, in Six Mile, is hosting a special event this holiday season. Join them on December 8 from noon to 3 p.m. to sample holiday treats, and browse and purchase food and gifts in the store. The event is open to all; no membership is required for this event. This is an opportunity to sample seasonal products and shop without having a membership, as well as to learn more about the benefits of a co-op membership.
Co-op pricing is different than a conventional natural food store. Items are priced at wholesale plus shipping and include state sales tax. At the register, mark-ups are added according to membership status.
The Upstate Food Co-op is a member-owned volunteer organization that incorporated as Share Food Co-op in 1978, and then reincorporated as Upstate Food Co-op in 2003 for the purpose of providing natural and organic food to its members. They keep their shelves stocked with commonly used bulk items, beverages, produce, prepackaged products, refrigerated and frozen products, as well as culinary and medicinal herbs and supplements.
