Co-op News- Online Payment Option Now Available


I’m happy to announce that you can now use your credit/debit online to pay for your co-op purchases!

After you make your selections to your cart and proceed to check out you will now see a 3rd button for credit card payments.

You can tie a credit or debit card to your account. Once the card is validated, you’ll be able to pay directly into your account and draw down over time or charge your individual orders to this card. This page is secure, and the card information will be securely stored with our payment processors.

The market manager will not be able to access your card information directly. You will be able to edit or remove this card or replace it with a different one at any time.

There is a 3.5% Convenience Fee charged for credit card purchases to cover the bank and development fees associated with allowing online credit card payments.

We support all Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards.

We will still continue to take checks and cash at pick but we hope paying online will be an added convenience.

Cream is available from Mountain Fresh Creamery


Hi Everyone,

Mountain Fresh Creamery now has pints of cream available!

It was just listed on the market website and I know a lot of you have been waiting for this!

It is Heavy whipping cream fresh from their cows with 39% butterfat.

If you placed an order for other items earlier you can still order the cream. The system will combine both order totals for you.

Thanks so much,
Nora

Weblog Entry


Hi Everyone and Welcome New Members,

The market is open!
Bulk Coffee Order this weekend
This weekend we will have our monthly bulk order with Carrboro Coffee Company (CCC). CCC provides the co-op with freshly roasted coffees. The artisan roasters at CCC know their coffee growers personally. These are fantastic, small lot coffees and the beans are bought directly from their farmers at a fair price. Because these are small lots, it is very comparable to our family farms here, and most of these farmers cannot afford the organic certification even though they use organic methods. We will be taking pre-orders on the website for the coffee this weekend and place our order next week after Christmas. I hope to have the coffee by the Jan 2nd pick up.

Merry Christmas & Thank you for your support!
