Congratulations to Company Shops Market!
The Co-op is success story showing the power of community buy-in and what you can accomplish when they band together for the common good. Not so long ago, Company Shops Market was just a dream but through the support of the community, the hard work of a committed group of founding board members and the efforts of volunteers, last year the market became a reality.
Today they celebrated their 1 year anniversary with a cook-out, local producer food vendor fair, live music and a community talent show. We stopped by the anniversary celebration event to join in on the fun, visit with friends, grab a tasty lunch, and of course we took a few quick photographs in the midst of everything.
