Delridge Produce Co-Op is off the launch pad!

We told you about this growing effort – last night was the first open meeting to discuss how to make it happen, and Galena White has posted a report on the co-op website – including:

We all agreed that a working mission statement could be, “Bring inexpensive organic produce to Delridge.” We’d like to see a storefront as soon as possible, but we know that we need lots more people to get involved to make that happen. Most of us liked the idea of a Mobile Market, with the exception of Jen, who has experience in that area and says that: while a Mobile Market could be useful, in the long term she thinks that a storefront would work better. We were all interested in the prospect of a cafe attached to a storefront that would use the fresh ingredients at their peak of ripeness, because Delridge lacks a healthy restaurant.

As Galena mentions in the full report, there’s still plenty of time to get involved – next meeting’s next week.

    This is a great idea…

    I would support that business!

    I totally support the idea of a produce market on Delridge – we sure need it! But, I take issue with the statement that we have no healthy restaurants. I submit that Pearls (formerly known as Bubbles) and Olympia Pizza and Pasta both have very nutritious food items on their menus. Of course, more and healthier options are always welcome! Delridge has lots of potential, and I look forward to seeing more businesses move in.

    I think that what we at the meeting meant was that what was missing was something closer to a restaurant that is dedicated specifically to healthy foods alone.

Sorry, comment time is over.
