Market is open and very important announcement

Dear WOC customer,

The online market is open and we have a very important announcement that this week’s cycle will be the last one for the time being.

We’ve made the difficult decision to shelve the Washtenaw Organic Collaborative online marketplace for now – the last pickup will be July 24th.

It’s been a wonderful collaborative experience, and felt like really what we all needed, especially last year! We are extremely appreciative of all the contributions folks have made and all the dedication of our very loyal customers. However, when considered against multiple factors, including sales being a small fraction of what they were last year and not trending well, the three founding members decided simply put we could no longer justify the energy it requires of us.

We will mothball the name and marketing narrative. There will be a few more communications with information regarding where to find the products of all our wonderful vendors.

The collaborative experience has been a very valuable learning experience. We look forward to future opportunities to collaborate with this great community! We feel prepared for future scenarios where this kind of collaboration may be called upon again. Thanks for all your support and all you do!

-Shannon, Kim, and Kristen
