At the Monadnock Food Co-op, we strive to build stronger relationships with our local producers to ensure we all thrive.
Growing Together: Local Producer E-Newsletter
Thank you, organic local food growers and producers, for participating in our inaugural Producer Survey — a collaboration between Monadnock Food Co-op and Cheshire Country Conservation District. We plan to offer this survey every other year to track our progress and identify new trends.
As we dove into the survey results and created a plan to help support our local producers better, we decided to launch our first course of action — sending out our first Monadnock Food Co-op Producer E-Newsletter, Local Vendors in Keene .
Past Producer E-Newsletters
We will send out this e-newsletter four times a year. Have things you’d love us to highlight? Please send an email to our Community Coordinator, Jen Risley.

Demos are an opportunity to tell your unique story, share your product with shoppers, and make a connection with your customer. We welcome our local vendors in Keene and producers to demo in our co-op! Before scheduling a demo, please review our Demo Checklist below and Frequently Asked Questions below:
What do I need to bring to the demo?

What are the best times to Demo?
Our preferred demo times include 11am – 2pm & 3:00pm – 6:00pm. These times are not set in stone, but in our experience our local vendors in Keene tend to have the most successful demos during these times However, the busiest times at our co-op are not necessarily the best times to host a demo.
