New Leaf Co-op has UW-Green Bay ties and January special events
New Leaf Market Cooperative is bringing together growers and eaters in the first-ever winter farmers market in downtown Green Bay. The markets are set for two Saturdays, Jan. 15 and 29, 8 a.m. to noon, at the KI Convention Center. Vendors will have fresh, frozen, organic, and locally grown and prepared food available for purchase. New Leaf Market will hold a membership drive.
“Joining the cooperative is making an investment with the reward of joining like-minded individuals to bring something unique and needed to the downtown area, says Lynn Walter, co-director, Center for Food in Community and Culture at UW-Green Bay and a board member.
She notes that the member shares will be held in reserve until the membership votes to go ahead with the project. To learn more, visit www.newleafmarket.org.
