Join us for Mississippi Market Co-op's annual meeting and celebration! We'll serve a lovely meal catered by our own deli, highlighting local foods of the season, and a complimentary drink. The Board of Directors will report on the co-op's performance over the last fiscal year and announce the newly elected board members and grant recipients. Fred Haberman, of Haberman and Associates, will speak about the importance of co-ops in the local food system and innovations including the aquaponic/hydroponic operation, Urban Organics, going into the old Hamm's Brewery. This is a chance to share a meal with your co-op neighbors and celebrate what it means to be a part of a cooperative.
