October is National Co-op month and it’s also the month we celebrate with our annual meeting. When you joined the Good Earth Market, you joined with your friends and peers to ensure the ongoing commitment to our local community and our local food system. Don’t forget, when you join a co-op you own a piece of the business. Stay informed and be heard by attending the annual meeting:

Our special guest speaker this year is C. E. Pugh from National Cooperative Grocers (NCG). C. E. is the Chief Operating Officer for NCG and he will be presenting on the national trends affecting co-op grocery stores like ours. C. E. has been involved in co-ops for many years and his passion for the success of co-ops is clear. You don’t want to miss this chance to meet him.


We hold our annual membership meeting during National Co-Op Month as a way to highlight the co-op business model and to remind members that Good Earth Market exists primarily for the benefit of its members. Being “Stronger Together” requires all of us to be active shoppers, active advocates, and active members. Show your support by attending this year’s annual meeting.
