Cherry Tomatoes at the Farmers Market

From the Executive Director:

October 2022

As most of you know, a new board was formed in December of 2020, separate from the Prairieland Food Co-op board, to guide Prairieland Market toward becoming a 501(c) 3 nonprofit charitable organization, that was accomplished earlier this year. Because of stipulations in the 501(c) 3 recognition, the Co-op will need to remain in place to operate the Market until the income limitations have expired and we complete other obligations. 

Our mission continues:
"To encourage healthy food choices, provide nutritional food education, and access to local, organic, and craft foods, in order to promote enhanced well-being for the community."

To continue as a Co-op, we will still need members. Thank you for your past and continued support. It's now time to renew at the $25, $50, or $100 level, or those of you that can help us further, please consider an additional (now) tax-deductible donation to Prairieland Market. 

You can renew your membership or donate at the store, online through PayPal, or by completing the donation form and sending your gift by mail. On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Prairieland Food Cooperative, the Board of Directors of the new Prairieland Market, and the staff and volunteers at Prairieland Market, we appreciate your continued support and look forward to sharing our progress as we move into the next generation of providing healthy choices and promoting enhanced well-being for the community.

If you would like to make special arrangements, or discuss your gift, please feel free to contact Vickee Spicer at (785) 820-1369 or email vespicer@gmail.com.
