Celebrate Local Love
Here at the co-op, we tend to focus on local love for our farmers, vendors, other products, staff and of course our customers! We’ve handpicked a few local favorites that you can buy for a close friend, partner, coworker or family member, or any relationship in your life that you want to celebrate. These are products we’re particularly a fan of. Big Picture Farm caramels, Lake Champlain chocolates, YumEarth snacks, and of course local flowers too.
Big Picture Farm (Townshend, VT) is committed to making the finest, most delicious caramels in the world. Their secret ingredient is the milk -- they use fresh, creamy, delicious milk from their own herd of happy and healthy, free-browsing companions.
Our Floral Department is bringing in an assortment of ethically grown roses for Valentine’s Day!
Throughout the winter we carry floral bouquets from Green Mountain Blooms (East Hartford, CT), a Rainforest Alliance Certified consortium of domestic and international farms that are dedicated to doing business responsibly. All of their flowers come from farms that are committed to environmental, social and economic sustainability.
Lake Champlain Chocolates (Burlington, VT)
Indulge your inner chocolate lover. Shop carefully crafted chocolates from LCC! Shop fresh, handcrafted chocolate including truffles, assortments, bars and more! Handcrafted in Vermont.
YumEarth (Stamford, CT) organic candy is artificial dye-free & delicious! Try their vegan treats from fruit snacks to gummy bears, and everyone's favorite lollipops.
Local businesses offer us much to love. They strengthen our local economy, culture, and wellbeing. Independent businesses re-circulate four times more money in our community than chain stores.
