One of our amazing Member-Owners recently traveled cross-country. On their way they stopped at food co-ops and shared anecdotes and photos from each visit with us:
Iowa City is where we found the New Pioneer Co-op. Our first encounter was with an employee who has worked for the Co-op for 31 years — so far! They actually have two locations currently and a third one in planning stages. The layout reminded us of the Montpelier, VT Co-op. I was impressed that they sold a ceramic mug with their logo – made by an Iowa City pottery (selling price $9.99). I think the location we visited might have been their original site. They now have a larger store north of Iowa City in Coralville.
