Here’s an excerpt from the article in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner on the Harvest Fair that appeared August 30, written by Rebecca George:
Despite humble beginnings, a locally owned and operated cooperative grocery is becoming a reality in Fairbanks.
More than 500 people attended the Pioneer Park Civic Center for the Harvest Fair on Saturday to check out what will soon be a Fairbanks Community Cooperative Market in downtown Fairbanks.…“Our community has wildly diverse interests in wildly diverse things — and that could very well define Fairbanks,” Rep. David Guttenberg said as he introduced the market and read a proclamation about the co-op’s visionary, Dave Lacey, who died this year.
This story was picked up by the Anchorage Daily News, too. There was also a story in the News-Miner the day before the event.
