The Willkommen Committee recently met with volunteers from New Ulm Community Market and Cooperative to welcome them as a new member! New Ulm Community Market and Cooperative is a member-owned business seeking to provide people in the New Ulm community with local, fresh, organic foods and much more! The Co-op has a set of criteria for the products they sell. Farmers contact them and then they go visit the farm, nothing can be sprayed and they must follow organic practices. All of the meat is farm raised with no antibiotics. Most products are locally grown in Minnesota. They are proud to have products that you might not be able to find in a grocery store, and most products come with a story behind them!
The Co-op currently has 167 members but is looking to grow! Become a lifetime member for one payment of just $150 or smaller payments of $25. Members receive special discounts and other perks, they are also part owner of the store! According to their website, “Members set the goals and direction for the Co-op. Instead of focusing on profit, the Co-op’s mission is to serve YOU. Your membership will help the NUCMC raise the capital needed to get your Cooperative started. Memberships are lifetime and give you a voice in how the Co-op is run. With your support through membership we can bring an exciting opportunity for consumers to New Ulm to serve the wider area’s needs and desires for fantastic food, education, and social events.”
New Ulm Community Market and Cooperative is currently located at 506 1st St N, and has been at this location for 2 months. They are open on Thursdays from 2-7, the same time as the Farmer’s Market, so be sure to stop at both! For additional information you can check out their website here! And be sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Intsagram @newulmcommunitycoop! If you have any additional questions you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
