Iowa Food Coop Open House!!

Come and join us for our holiday Open House!

We are hosting some of our best Producers in an open house celebration at our pick up site in Merle Hay Mall!

December 4, beginning at 11am our fabulous producers will be giving away samples of their products.  Meet the fine folks from Wild Rose Pastures, Grandma’s Soap, Griffieon’s Family Farm, Ebersole Cattle Co., Wheat Grass To Go, Wagner Enterprises, Raccoon Forks Farm, Hedgeapple Farm, Anna’s Place Poultry Products, Two Cedars Weaving just to name a few!  Meats, fall veggies, soap, poinsettias, baked goods, candy and much much more will be available for purchase too.

If you have family or friends who are still undecided, this would be a good time for them to sample what the coop has to offer before joining.  If there was something YOU wanted to try before buying this is a good opportunity for you too.  I’m not kidding, Ebersole’s jerky AND beef sticks are out of this world!  Wagner Enterprises caramels are a delicious treat, and don’t you deserve that after all that Christmas shopping?

So come out to our pickup site at Merle Hay Mall, its located on the southside, just inside the doors across from the parking garage, we are next to the Post Office. We will be sampling from 11am to 4pm, and gift memberships will be available too! 

See you there!

  4. I happen to have a meeting in Des Moines that gets out just in time to make it over to Merle Hay Mall. I will definitely try to make it.
