Maybe September’s Eat Local Challenge got you thinking about how to vote with your dollars. Maybe it left you sitting in the shade, eating an OnoPop. Either reaction is awesome for October: It’s National Cooperative Month! A great time to drink artisanal beer (after all, it’s also Oktoberfest), carve pumpkins (shout out to Halloween) and celebrate at Kokua Market, “the only natural foods cooperative in Hawaiʻi!”
“Certainly we will be having special discounts, an ownership drive and in-store demos,” says Larry Kirby, store manager, of National Co-op Month events.
