MFC Newsletter - January 2020

Welcome New Board Member! 

This month was Jane’s first meeting as Acting Director. She will primarily be focusing on outreach, including writing this newsletter and managing our social media accounts. She moved to Montavilla in November, and is very excited to get to know this community better! If you’re interested in helping Jane with outreach, email


Local’s Market Recap

The 2019 Local’s Market was a success! The money raised will go directly to our general fund and get us one step closer towards opening a cooperative grocery store in Montavilla. The market brought in over 250 guests to check out local artisans selling knitted items, art prints, books, food and more! Thank you very much to everyone who came to shop, sell their wares, or volunteer. And thank you to Montavilla United Methodist Church for renting us the space. We are looking forward to doing it again next year.


Expert Advisors

As we get closer to securing a physical location, we are seeking the support and input of our members. The board is looking for volunteers, advisors, and board nominees to help us make that transition from planning to implementation.  Are you an architect, lawyer, or business owner with grocery/retail expertise? We would love to hear from you!
