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.
