As Spring progresses fresh produce is becoming more available! Check out this week's fresh finds. Plus, see an important update for our Osceola and West Des Moines satellite sites below.

Co-op Updates:

We are organizing a membership-wide get together on Sunday, May 22 from 3 - 6 PM. As the pandemic eases, we hope it will be an opportunity to re-connect with fellow local-food enthusiasts, share a meal, and chat about how much has changed (and how much hasn't!).

The event is BYOB and potluck style, so bring a dish to share if you would like! Please bring you own reusable dishware. Contact board member Inger Lamb (details below) with any questions, and if you know what you plan to bring, let her know, so we don't end up eating only cookies. ;)

Check Out Your NEW + Improved Shopping Experience

New Software: Quick Tips

  • No need to open a basket or cart--simply start shopping and add products to your cart.
  • Mobile + tablet friendly
  • Your pick-up location carries over from the previous cycle--change the location at any time while the shopping window is open (change by clicking the cart icon, then use the drop-down menu to change location)
  • An improved product search allows you to quickly find your favorite items and discover new ones!
  • New product ‘varieties’ allow you to choose flavors and types quickly and easily (like sliced bread or style of coffee grind).
  • Want to request a customized item? Such as ‘no cinnamon’ in your apple pie? Simply leave a ‘Shopper Note’ from your cart. If the producer is not able to accommodate your request, they can ‘deny’ the note and you can either remove the item from your cart or accept it, uncustomized.
  • On-site purchasing at Franklin: Your on-site purchases will now be associated with your member account so you’ll be able to view past purchases.
