Started by a group of food-loving neighbors, The Sugar Beet Cooperative is building a new kind of grocery store in Oak Park by Summer 2014.
The Sugar Beet will be a community managed store, will sell food directly from local farms and producers, and will educate citizens about the importance of supporting farmers and the local economy. It will also include a commercial kitchen where our community can take classes on cooking and preserving, so that folks are able to eat locally year-round here in the Midwest.
The Sugar Beet Co-op will be a gathering place for people to grow, cook, discuss, and eat food together.
