How to order & when to pick up your Holiday Gift Bags
Gift bag pre-ordering has now closed so that our local suppliers can put together their orders. Holiday gift bags cost $55 each and pickup will be at 460 York Boulevard on the following dates:
- Friday December 13, 4pm-8pm

Not only is it the perfect gift , its a special way to support local food producers this holiday season and a great conversation piece about our soon-to-open Co-op.
Another great local gift idea….
There’s a new CSA in town, but instead of fruits and vegetables, this CSA is offering professionally-curated collections of original art by established local artists. Arts organization CoBALT Connects is bringing the popular buy-local model to Hamilton’s art scene, supporting 10 artists in the creation of new work, and providing an accessible way for art lovers to begin or expand collections. The three discipline-specific collections (Fine Craft, Photography and Illustration) are for sale now at a price of $350, but for friends, investors and members of the Mustard Seed Co-op, the collections are being offered at a $25 discount, with CoBALT Connects donating the remaining $25 back to the Mustard Seed Co-op.
A limited number of each collection is available, so buy now and pick up your new art at the last art crawl of the year on December 13th. To read more about the artists and the collections, and to purchase, visit: www.communitysupportedart.canote: substitutions to the Holiday Gift Bags may be required based on volumes ordered.
