Squashin' the Harvest Campaign
The Purple Carrot is wrapping up its fall ownership campaign with a celebration at the Shoppes of Little Falls on Friday, September 30. Fall produce and goods will be available from the Farmers Growers Market, and from noon - 2 pm we will have a cooking demonstration on how to roast squash. We will share winter squash recipes - bring your favorite! - and sample the squash prepared by Waller House Inn's Raquel Lundberg and Purple Carrot Market's Pat McGuire.
And if you've been procrastinating on becoming an owner, this is your chance! The fall campaign has "harvested" 10 new owners to date, but we need you to join TODAY! We need to demonstrate the community support and commitment to open the doors on our locally owned grocery store. You can find more information on ownership by clicking on our owners page.
Harvest Party Celebrates Co-Op Ownership
The Purple Carrot's booth at the Shoppes of Little Falls is the place to be on Wednesday, August 31 as the co-op launches our fall ownership campaign with a Harvest Party. Starting when the Shoppes open at 10 am, you can purchase grass-fed beef from Januschka Family Farm and fresh produce from local farmers.
From noon - 1:00 pm, come learn some tips on making Pico de Gallo at our cooking demonstration. All of this just in time for your Labor Day Weekend cookout!
Did we mention the prize drawings? Register to win one of two prize packages containing 5 lbs of grass-fed beef and a t-shirt courtesy of Januschka Family Farm.
The Party really gets going at 5:00 pm when the Purple Carrot invites its owners to come share the bounty of the Harvest and visit with prospective owners as we strive to reach 160 owners by September 30.
Fantastic Fish on Saturday, August 6
Once again the Alaska Wild Fish Company will join the Purple Carrot Market at the Shoppes of Little Falls on Saturday, August 6 from 10 am - 4 pm. Having just returned from a fishing trip to Alaska, the fish will be fresh and delicious. The Purple Carrot is proud to partner with the Pietron family from Cushing, MN. This is the type of excellent food you can expect to see when the Purple Carrot opens its store. Make that dream a reality by becoming an owner!
Owners of the Purple Carrot enjoyed a beautiful afternoon and evening talking with visitors to the Franciscan Sisters Green Fair Folk Festival August 3rd.
