Its time to join (or renew) at All Things Local Cooperative Market

atlbannerAll Things Local Cooperative Market is an experiment in local food democracy.  Whenever I mention the co-op to friends, I get a smile and a nodding reassurance that they truly believe this little store is an important step toward a more sustainable way of living.  But when I ask if they are members….. well, most say something like “yes, I should join…… but (fill in the blank).”  A co-op  relies on membership to be successful! 

Its time, now – please “click here” and join!

We need to make a commitment to:

  • local food
  • local crafts
  • local economy
  • local community
  • local caring for our neighbors
  • local caring for the earth…. right here in our home town

Membership is commitment… please join (or renew) now!

Here is a message from the managers at ATL from the most recent newsletter. 

—————————————————————————–

All Things Local Cooperative Market provides a vibrant place to embrace community – buying and selling food and art, sharing treats and ideas as we create a more local economy.  It is a bold experiment in sustainability! We have celebrated a year and a half in business and we have, as of this date, distributed over a half million in payments to our local producers.

We are grateful to you, our members, our community, because your membership dollars go so far to help us provide a space to make this venture possible. Your membership allows us to return 70% to our producers, allowing them to earn and pay their employees a livable wage. Membership at ATL costs you only 14 cents per day! One person paying 14 cents per day certainly couldn’t maintain a storefront in downtown Amherst, which is why we are asking all of you, our community, to renew your membership or make an additional contribution now to keep the vision of ATL possible!

Memberships are a major factor in ATL’s success, and I ask that you kindly visit the website to renew, or stop by the shop and renew in person.

The first few years of any venture are vulnerable, and I hope you will continue your support of our growth and improvement through membership, volunteering, and of course, shopping!

Sincere Thanks!
