The solidarity basket

Many of you made the choice to encourage local producers.  This wave of solidarity fills us with hope for the future, a future where food sovereignty will be at the heart of societal debates.  We will continue to close ranks among small producers and build bridges between us and our community.

The ranks continue to grow in the co-op, we are now at 29 members!  A nice virtual warm welcome to our new members: Les Jardins Apicoles de la Frontière, Artisan du vivant, La Fée des Pousses, La Safranière des Cantons, La Cueilleuse des Bois, Les Jardins Lemmy Lou, Fraîcheur Urbaine, Au Coeur de la Pomme, Le Gros Nez, Vignoble en Attendant l’Hiver, Ferme Commun’aut’Terre  (Pierre-Luc Lavertu) et les Jardins Douce Amer!

And we warmly thank all the customers who feed us and we feed them.  One love!

In this month's newsletter, we'll talk about the new online store, the markets this summer, a job offer from the co-op and fundraising.

This Summer's Markets Formula


This summer, given the delicate sanitary situation, we are holding a kiosk at the markets but in a different way.  In order to protect our customers and our producers, we have opted for the point of fall formula at the markets.  That is to say that you could order on our online store and pick up your order at the Sutton and Frelighsburg markets. In this way, we hope to enforce the sanitary regulations more while maintaining our offer.

On our online store, choose a Sutton or Frelighsburg drop-off point (Frelighsburg drop-off point available as of June 13th)https://www.marcheatable.com/leterroirsolidaire.
