Will the Community Market co-op hurt farmers or farmer’s markets?

The Community Market Co-op in Fuquay-VarinaThe fact is that a co-op exists to serve its members, and many of our members are local farmers, so why do they join?

Farmers would rather be farming, so it makes sense that they would need an outlet other than Grower’s Markets to sell their products. The Community Market will be that outlet! We will sell local produce and goods, giving small farmers shelf space that they will never get in a conventional grocery store.

Additionally, The Community Market will be open regular grocery store days and hours, so healthy farm-fresh food has more of a chance to make it to your table, and our local growers and producers have more time on the farm!
