Last year on July 4, Chicago Market had been active for three weeks. We published a flag, similar to this one, which had the names of our first Owners.
It didn't require a very large picture to read everyone's name back then.
A year later, and Chicago Market has grown a bit. Now we have more than 650 Owners and their households, all working together to create this (independent!) dream grocery store. You might have to squint a little to find your name on the list. Here's hoping that next year, the flag will be ten times as big.
Thanks for being part of our co-op family, and happy Fourth of July!
