Chicago Market Newsletter - December 2019
Holiday Pop-Up Market a Smash Success
We think a vibrant community hub at the corner of Wilson and Broadway should not be just occasional like this - we want a grocery store and community gathering hub open there every day of the year. As Owners you're making that happen.
(More photos from the Pop-Up Market here.)
The Board elects officers each fall and recently voted to seat: Grant Kessler as president; Sarah Kircher as vice-president; Isaac Emerson as treasurer and Lee Herman as secretary.
- Help your Co-op succeed. Bring your friends out to our Ownership Info Session this Saturday, December 14 at Bezazian Branch Library, 1-2:00pm.
Concern for Community...and Cookies!
"I love supporting local organizations that provide good food for Chicagoans to feed their families in tough times. I also love making and sharing holiday cookies.
Cookies will be ready for pickup the week of 12/16 at my home in Lincoln Square area (or I may be able to drop off if you’re nearby or in northern ‘burbs). Please note these are not vegan, gluten-free or lactose-free and I can’t guarantee a nut-free environment.

News From Our Owners
From Owner Anni Metz: "I think a lot of you will be interested in a project I've been working on -- House Warming, a podcast about climate policy and solutions in Chicago and Illinois. My good friend Abby and I decided to start the podcast a few months ago, when we realized that we were having a hard time keeping up on the latest climate news despite our best efforts. On the podcast, we'll interview experts and activists and community leaders and aggregate the latest climate news so our friends and neighbors can stay up-to-date.
We've released two episodes so far: an interview about regenerative agriculture with Illinois Stewardship Alliance and an interview about the Clean Energy Jobs Act with The Illinois Environmental Council. You can listen here: housewarmingpod.com
