Farmer City Grocery Co-op Supporters Hold Meeting

Farmer City residents this past weekend held an informational meeting regarding a grocery co-op.


Sue McLaughlin, city manager for Farmer City, told Regional Radio there was an informational meeting about the grocery co-op initiative on Sunday. At the meeting, residents heard from a representative from the Illinois Institute of Rural Affairs



McLaughlin indicates the City has been in contact with the group behind the initiative and is committed to offering the assistance they may need. She is hopeful this group will be more successful than others in the past.


Local producers would benefit from having a place year-round to sell their produce. McLaughlin believes Farmer City needs a grocery store but maybe not enough for a traditional full-size store.



The initiative is spearheaded by Laura Enger and more information can be found on Facebook.
