Upcoming Workshop on Plastic-Free Grocery Shopping


April 14. 1pm
Join us for an informal workshop in the Co-op’s cafe space as we discuss how to reduce plastic from your household, starting with food shopping. We will cover a few topics during the session, including:
How to prepare for plastic-free shopping: shopping supplies, where to shop (The Mustard Seed of course!),
How to choose product: comparing brands, coping with limited choice (expectations) and environmental impact,
What is happening around the world? and
How to begin to bring about change, personally, and in our City.
We will be joined by two plastic-free gurus, Dawn Davis & Lindsey Wilson.
Please RSVP so we know how many people to expect. Kids are also weocome – if you plan on bringing children please let us know their ages so we can plan appropriately. Registration through Eventbrite.

Its our 5th Birthday this Weekend!



We are so super excited to be celebrating 5 years of growth and connection with our local food system and our community. The co+op began as a seed of an idea 7 years ago and here we are grateful to be Hamilton’s only local food co+op with a cafe. We’ve had the pleasure of working with so many farmers, small businesses just starting out and so many established local champions.

You are cordially invited to join us as we celebrate this awesome milestone on February 9th here at the co+op from 10-3pm. There will be cake! Amongst many other locally loved things. 🎈

Grab a friend and come say hello! THANK YOU HAMILTON.
