P6 Month is a time for our P6 stores to highlight the small, local, and cooperative producers that make P6 great. Wholesale cooperatives like Organic Valley, Maple Valley, and Equal Exchange are offering discounts only at P6 stores, and many other P6 producers locally are also passing discounts on to consumers. There are some great events lined up for P6 month. Check them out:
Eastside Food Co-op already held their P6 month kickoff event on July 27th to be in conjunction with a big community festival in their neighborhood, Open Streets. They held a co-op parking lot BBQ, highlighting P6 producer Gerhard’s Brats among others.
Seward Community Co-op will hold their P6 month kickoff this Saturday, August 2nd. There will be samples from many P6 producers including Ferndale, Maple Valley, Organic Valley, and Kickapoo Coffee. Seward will be using the Twitter hashtag for P6 month, #p6, to allow customers to enter a raffle to win a P6 prize!
Viroqua Food Co-op will host a P6 Parking lot square dance on August 22nd. This free event will share delicious P6 food, local music, and dancing! Read more on page four of their newsletter.
