Company Shops Market Grounbreaking Celebration by Luck Photography 20101114_2986We are big supporters of the local and natural foods co-op that is coming to downtown Burlington NC this year, called Company Shops Market.  Luck Photography has been photographing Company Shops Market events since the very first Kick-off Potluck in September 2007. We really want a food co-op like this to come to our community so providing them with photographs is one of the many ways we have volunteered our help.

I got a small pop of pride and happiness when I saw that the documentary film makers decided to include a few of our photos in this mini-doc. (With permission, of course.) This video is part of a series produced by documentary film students at Elon University for Company Shops Market.

The photos with all those lovely green “I Love My Co-op” balloons are from a set of photos we took at the Company Shops Groundbreaking Celebration a few months ago. This particular video features Reedy Fork Organic Dairy Farm in Elon, NC. The Teague Family, who owns and runs the dairy,  just got some national exposure as an “Extraordinary Finalist” in Stoneyfield Organic’s Grant a Farmers Wish Grant Contest. I’m so proud of our local community for coming together to bring access to wholesome, healthy, fresh foods raised by and for the community.
