Amherst’s own downtown cooperative market (and experiment in social justice) welcomes college students to stop by and participate in a real world form of “small d” democracy. Easy to find at 104 North Pleasant St. (across from Barts Ice Cream).
Oh yes…. they also have some really good food! Like fresh vegetables and fruit from local farms!
And a really good cup of 75 cent freshly brewed coffee from the Pierce Brothers (with local milk and local honey if you like)!
If you made it this far in this post, you may be a fan! For more pictures, check them out on Instagram at: https://instagram.com/atlcoop/
Finally, they LOVE to have college student volunteers. To sign up, fill out the form here: http://allthingslocal.coop/volunteer-survey/
