After over a decade of planning, last week, Lovettsville Cooperative Market (LCM) in Lovettsville, Virginia opened its doors to their over 1,200 member-owners and their extended community! The Cooperative Development Fund of CDS is proud to have played a small part in their success by acting as a fiscal sponsor for this effort.
LCM is a full-service grocery store with a strong focus on supporting the local food system. The store features over 70 local producers, including 20 from within their county alone. The opening day and ribbon cutting ceremony were well-attended by the community. The co-op is planning a Grand Opening Celebration on December 2nd.
