A Great Way to Help a Fellow Local Food Coop

In the spirit of cooperation, we encourage you to attend Farm-to-Table to help the Good Egg Food Co-op raise funds. All proceeds directly fund their efforts to open a store front in Durand in 2013. Prepare for delicious locally produced food, beautiful scenery, good people, music to dance to, a silent auction with items you will want to bid on and, of course, fire twirlers. Enjoy!

Amy Goodman @ Just Local Food

Amy Goodman came in the store with Denis and wanted some good local food to eat on their drive.  They chose Water Street Deli's delicious Hummus and a package of Gluten Free Roasted Garlic crackers from Potter's Crackers.  Two great choices!  Amy was so intrigued with the gluten free crackers that she opened them up and had a bite.  She loved them!

Thank you Amy, Denis, Sarah, Sam @ Water Street Deli, and Nancy @ Potter's Crackers!

Savings on Tomatoes

If there is ever a time you wanted to can or freeze tomatoes this weekend is it!

Just Local Food can save you a bundle on large, ripe, sweet "no spray - Amish grown" tomatoes - but they are going fast!

We already sold over a dozen 1/2 bushel cases(approx. 25 pounds) for only $15.00!!! 

If we run out we can see if we can place an order so that you get them by Sunday - or later next week.

Come on by ASAP and grab a case or two(12 case are here now).

Word coming in from some customers is that these are great tasting tomatoes that make great sauce. They make fantastic Salsa too!
