The co-op was founded in part to increase access to local foods, and supporting and sourcing from WNY farms and producers continues in our work every day! From year-round local apples, to fresh dairy, Buffalo-made pierogi, to locally brewed beers, natural meats from WNY farms and local ingredients in our prepared foods, we’re committed to building our regional economy. Carrying local products in the co-op increases access for owners and shoppers and broadens the market for WNY food producers. Together, we’re keeping your grocery dollars in your community. This is a participation loan with Shared Capital Cooperative.
