Food Co-ops in Maine


A look at the rise of food co-ops in Maine.  We'll find out how they differ from your  local grocery store, and the benefits of joining a co-op.

Guests:  Laura McCandlish - Brunswick-based food writer and radio producer.  She writes the weekly "Farm-to-Table Family" column for the Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram.  She's also has a co-op joining problem, seeing as she's a member of the Portland Food Co-op, the Rising Tide Co-op and the Merrymeeting Buying Club.
 Mary Alice Scott, Education & Outreach Coordinator for the Portland Food Co-op.
 Veronique Vendette, Chair of the board, Gardiner Food Co-op & Cafe.
