Sugar Beet Food Co-op opened July 31

Posted on July 31st, 2015 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Sugar Beet Food Co-op is a startup co-operative grocery store, like Wild Root Market Food Co-op. They are located in Oak Park, Illinois. Some people from Wild Root Market met some of the folks from Sugar Beet at a recent day-long food co-op workshop in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois. We could not be happier for their success in opening their doors on July 31.


We met people from other co-op startups in our region, as well. It is inspiring to see their web pages and Facebook pages, and to learn that they are working through the same kinds of things we’re experiencing here in Racine.


We will continue to add links to other food co-ops in our region in the days ahead. Look for those links on our On-line Resources page.
