Island Roots Market Co-op

Almost a year ago we made a post on our website announcing the coming of another great co-op to the Nanaimo area, Island Roots Market Co-op.

Island Roots Market Co-op will provide a building, equipment and staff needed for a year-round indoor Farmers/Artisans market, provide a place for farmers, artisans and other local producers to display and sell their products, encourage local food production, and provide a place for consumers to obtain locally grown and produced products.

Just recently they settled on 540 Milton St (near Albert St) to be their new home, just a few blocks up the hill from us. This is very exciting news not only for us as a fellow co-op, but also for local food and food security advocacy on Vancouver Island.

If you want to support this initiative and their mandate, you can do so by buying a share or two for only $10 a share. To learn more, visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
