Everyone is welcome to shop at the Co-op!

 Now Offering Maine Harvest Bucks

Maine Harvest Bucks are known as “nutrition incentives,” which increase the value of federal nutrition assistance dollars (SNAP/EBT) spent at participating farmers’ markets, Community Supported Agriculture farms, and retail outlets that sell local produce such as the Co-op. The program is put on by The Main Farmland Trust.


At the Gardiner Co-op the program will work as follows and is only eligible for purchases made with an EBT card. For every local item purchased, the customer will earn one Harvest Bucks $5 voucher (limit to 3 vouchers earned per customer per day).  Examples of local products include bread, dairy, meat, jam, and other locally produced food products that are accepted by EBT.  Each $5 voucher may then be spent during future visits on local produce items.

Highlights of Maine Harvest Bucks

SNAP shoppers can buy more healthy food

Maine farmers gain new customers

More food dollars stay in the local economy

    The Gardiner Co-op has been a busy place for the last few weeks and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it! So many great products and vendors! It has been wonderful to see so many people coming in to see the progress we have made and get excited to finally have the Co-op open for business. Great place, great people!

    Hope to see everyone at our Open House Pizza Night for the Co-op, this Saturday, Feb 22, from 5 to 7 at Circling the Square Fine Art Press (275 Water St). Should be a lot of fun, great local ingredient pizza (even some gluten free), world class music, and great discussions about the future Gardiner Food Co-op & Café. For more info go to the events page.

    Thank you for being there KLFI (and all of the volunteers who make it happen!), since I moved to Gardiner you have helped me get as much of my food as possible from sustainable local farmers and producers, most of whom I would have not had access to otherwise. I love picking up my order every two weeks and I can’t wait for the future Coop to open! Thank you, thank you!

    Tomorrow, Wednesday March 20 at 7 pm, please come to City Hall (Gardiner) and support ownership of mini-goats as pets providing unpasteurized raw milk for one’s own family…both sustainable and secure. This is a big meeting…please come. Marcina Johnson
