The Benefits of Co-ops

If you attended the showing of Food For Change that the Common Market held in conjunction with Hood College last month, then you may be aware of the economic benefits of cooperatives. If you’re still not sure about the cooperative model, though, take a look at Kristin Sutter’s article on food co-ops, courtesy of Taste of Home. And if you’re interested in making an investment in your community, consider becoming an owner at the Common Market. You can even give the gift of ownership for the holidays!

What is your favorite benefit of the co-op?
