Grocery stores exert considerable influence over the global food supply and in the communities we live. How do the largest grocers today maintain their grip on foodmakers, communities, and eaters?
As part of his North American book release tour, author Jon Steinman offers up a preview of his new book including disturbing trends emerging among the dominant grocers.
As Jon will share, community-owned grocery stores are more important today than ever before.

Praise for Grocery Story:
“A great read! Full of energy and eyes-wide-open hope. In an era of extreme economic concentration, Jon Steinman awakens us to elements of an arising democratic economy, hidden in plain sight. Grocery Story is, above all, an empowering tale we need now more than ever.”
– Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet, and, most recently coauthor of Daring Democracy
A big thanks to photographer Jeff Tessier for the great shots of our Co-op! Jeff is the photographer who took the original images of our farmers that hang in the store.
