Merry Christmas and the market will be held on Friday


We’ve reached the minimum number of orders to hold the market on Friday.
You have until 9 pm this evening to order for pickup on Friday.
Please set yourself a reminder to pickup up between 3:30 and 5:30 this Friday.
Happy Holidays to all
from the volunteer staff of the Spa Ciy Co-op.

The Market is now open for odering


The market is open for ordering. Orders may be placed until 9 pm. Tuesday the 25th for pickup Friday the 28th.
Due to this market falling between Christmas and New Year’s, we don’t know how many orders will be placed. As many members may be out of town for the holiday season, it’s possible that the number of orders placed may be very low.
As many of our vendors have to travel significant distances and our volunteers give a good portion of their day, we decided we need at least 10 orders placed by Monday evening. If we have not met this minimum, the market will be canceled.
Last year the holidays occurred right on the weekend which interfered enough with volunteers’ plans that we didn’t schedule those markets at all. Since we are uncertain how many members may be affected this year, we’re going to try for the 28th if we have enough orders to make it feasible.
If you do plan on ordering, please do so by Monday evening. I will send out a notice Monday evening verifying if the market is canceled or if there will be pickup on Friday the 28th.

Cocoa Available!


SUNNY WAY has 4 cans of organic, fair trade Spicy Hot Cocoa mix and 5 cans of Baking Cocoa still available before Christmas. You can add them to your order today (Tuesday) before 9 p.m., or they will be available for purchase on Friday at the Art Church.

Just a reminder -


This is the last Spa City Co-op market before Christmas. If you’ve still got holiday shopping to do, please consider giving gifts from our huge selection of Co-op items. There is a fabulous selection of edibles that would make wonderful gifts, and are consumable; in other works, they won’t collect dust on someone’s shelf waiting to go in their next garage sale. If you’re entertaining, many of our products can make awesome additions to your holiday table. And you’ll know you’re keeping your holiday dollars local.
We suggest:
Jams, jellies, chutneys, and salsas from the Processed Foods category
Wow your Christmas dinner guests with homemade rolls from Hannah.
Make goody bags of yummy spiced nuts from Wolfe’s fresh pecans.
Baking and salad dressing mixes, Russian teas, or a custom gift basket from The Essential Housewife
Honey from Hamlet Honey, perhaps teamed with coffee, tea, or cocoa, makes a great gift.
And many, many more. Use your imagination.

Happy holidays from Spa City Co-op

One more market before Christmas!


Just a reminder that the Co-op market will close tomorrow night, and that there is only one more market before Christmas. Our vendors offer lots of goodies that would make great gifts and stocking stuffers, and buying from them keeps your holiday dollars local.

On another note, be sure that if you need to contact someone regarding volunteering, that should go to our awesome volunteer coordinator Karen Harbut, not Karen Holcomb. Karen Harbut’s email is kgharbut@aol.com.

Enjoy the holiday season, and thanks for your support of Spa City Co-op.
