seen at the Portsmouth Health Food Store . . .

in addition to quite a bit of clearly labeled very local produce (hurrah!), I saw a truck from the Crown of Maine Organic Cooperative and rushed right home to explore the website –

I think a lot of us are learning through the September Eat Local Challenge that in  order for this to be sustainable in a time/life sense sort of way, it would help for food distribution systems to change a bit. The Crown of Maine Organic Cooperative looks like it fits right into a new model of food distribution, connecting local foods with local consumers. Their vision page is chock full of information about how they work and want they want to do – improve accessibility to local foods by working with small retailers, buying clubs, and restaurants while not in any way competing with farm to consumer direct sales. A most excellent model – who’s up for a Seacoast area version?

And I wonder if the Portsmouth Health Food Store is carrying the Maine grown and milled flour mentioned on the Crown of Maine website  . . . .
