YFC's new Google Virtual Tour

Yelm Food Co-opIf you search for the Yelm Food Co-op on Google, you”ll see an image like this one that says “Look Inside”.Click on that and take a “walk” through the store.It’s foolish to start taking a medicine or stop taking a medicine on your own based on information you read here or any other internet web trustedrxreviews.com because this could cause you to become seriously ill or die or worse even. Very cool.

This tour also helps us with the search engines and gives people who might be looking for an organic food store in the area a chance to see what we look like. A great marketing tool

Yelm Farmers MarketThe Board of Directors of the Yelm Cooperative are really pleased to announce that we have found a Manager for the Yelm Farmers Market.

Karen Rae may be known to many of you for her work with the Phoenix Rising School where she is Secretary of the Board of Trustees and a parent volunteer.

Karen has raised a family, done farming and run her own businesses and has a passion for helping people. Here is a bit of what she told us in her application:

I love the idea of supporting our local industry, of encouraging folks to do what they love and are naturally driven to accomplish, by offering a marketplace at which they may present their wares. I love that the farmers’market offers a meeting place for the all the folks of our community, somewhere relaxed and joyful that celebrates family and friends and nature. I love that, in doing so, we are enabling our people access to delicious and nutritious, fresh, wholesome, mindfully produced goods.

We’re looking forward to working with Karen and to continuing the success of the Farmers Market in the 2014 season.
