If you prefer your produce, eggs, honey and other foods to be grown where you live, plan to attend an informational meeting from 2:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday at the Richland Public Library.
A group of Tri-City residents are organizing an Atomic Cooperative Market and are seeking members and support.
If successful, the market will be a full-service grocery complete with bakery, deli and butcher.
The market will be open to the public, but membership is encouraged. Members will contribute the equity to start the business, and be rewarded by guaranteed access to natural and local foods, special members-only events and patronage refunds.
Memberships are $200 per year. Payment plans and arrangements for low-income residents are available.
