Friends & Farmers Come Together

Friends & Farmers Cooperative hosted its annual gathering for members and vendors in early November at the State College Friends School. Current and prospective members enjoyed a meal featuring local food, bartered with handmade and hand-grown products, and learned how the co-op and Online Market have grown. The soups and salads, featuring ingredients contributed by co-op vendors, were prepared by Elaine Wilgus at Webster’s Bookstore & Cafe. In addition, County Commissioner Michael Pipe facilitated a public comment period. Those attending suggested ways the co-op can work effectively toward its goal of building a brick and mortar store as well as best serve its customers. Photos by Diana Walker Griffith.
