Opening of food co-op in Ticonderoga explored

A Ticonderoga non-profit is exploring the possibility of bringing a natural food store to the area.

Pride of Ticonderoga recently completed a market study that found the community’s population and lack of viable competition makes it an attractive location for a food co-op.

The group is looking at three potential sites in downtown Ticonderoga for the co-op, which would provide residents of Essex and northern Washington Counties with access to natural foods.

In an effort to keep the conversation going and to learn more about how to bring a natural food store to the area, Sharon Reynolds, administrator of the study, is looking for residents of Ticonderoga and surrounding communities who want to be involved in research and planning.

“The idea is for everyone to meet and to learn about cooperatives and how they function in a community. This would be a grassroots effort like no other and we need energetic individuals who are passionate about access to fresh, local organic and healthy food,” she said.

Anyone who is interested in learning more is encouraged to email Reynolds at sreynolds@prideofticonderoga.org or call 585-6366, Ext. 103.
