A small group of four people first met in February of 2012 to talk about their desire to have a place where people could get healthy food year round in Maynard, MA. The group knew they wanted to find a way to create access to healthy food, but didn’t know exactly how to make it happen. They started learning about food co-operatives, got very excited, and initiated the process of trying to make the dream a reality. Today, the vision of the group is to open up a storefront market in Maynard that will be owned and operated by co-operative members. The Assabet Village Food Co-Op is currently made up of a Steering Committee, and a group of several enthusiastic volunteers. Typically, to get a food co-op up and running takes about three to five years – with the help of the community, the Assabet Village Food Co-op should be right on track!
