As 2019 drew to a close, an Owner-Donor gifted the Purple Carrot $200 to help the Purple Carrot reach the 400 owner milestone by year-end. The incentive took the form of a $20 rebate on the ownership investment for the next 10 individuals, businesses, or families to join the co-op. By New Years Day, 3 new owners took advantage of the incentive and the Purple Carrot now boasts a total of 393 owners.
That left us 7 owners shy of our goal. So, we are extending the incentive until the end of January or until we get 7 more owners, whichever comes first. But the rebate will definitely be gone by February 1, so take advantage of the generosity of one of our Owner-Donor today! You can become an owner online - click on the Online Store in the toolbar above - or stop by the Shoppes of Little Falls or Victor Mall (53 E Broadway) and pick up a brochure.
'Tis the season for GIFT OWNERSHIPS! They fit every family perfectly and come in many shades of purple. When you purchase a gift ownership for someone you love, you will receive a fun, handmade card to put in their stocking telling them that you got them a grocery store for Christmas!
So where can you buy a gift ownership for that special someone on your list? Stop by Sprout Growers and Makers Marketplace on Saturday, December 14 from 10 am - 3 pm. We will have our handmade cards there. Or you can purchase a gift ownership through by going to our online store here on our website. We will make arrangements to get you the card.
Just in time for the holidays the Purple Carrot Market invites our owners, to feast on fish, wild rice, honey, and maple syrup from Alaska Wild Fish Company. Not an owner yet? Join our co-op today and immediately enjoy the benefits of ownership by taking part in our "Owners Only Alaska Wild Fish Company Buying Club Blitz". The Buying Club allows you to feast on fish, wild rice, honey, and maple syrup from a local Central Minnesota business. The Pietron Family (a.k.a. Purple Carrot Owners #9) own Alaska Wild Fish, live in Central Minnesota, and have been fishing in Bristol Bay, Alaska for over 35 years.
Their salmon fillets are flash frozen then vacuum sealed to capture and preserve that “Fresh From The Water” flavor. In addition to their fresh frozen salmon, Pietrons have halibut, walleye, yellow perch in case quantities and at case prices. Concerned that you're not able to store and eat a case of fish? Buy a case with family, friends or neighbors and split it!
In the fall, the Pietrons selectively hand harvest wild rice from Minnesota lakes and rivers. Like a blend of brown and wild rice? Alaska Wild Fish offers a 50/50 blend U.S. grown brown rice and the locally harvested wild rice.
Visit the Purple Carrot's Online Store to buy your ownership share and take part in our Owner's Only Buying Club featuring the Alaska Wild Fish Company. But hurry because all orders must be in by 8:00 pm on Wednesday, December 11.
We have a goal: 25 new owners by December 31 and we want to tell everyone why the Purple Carrot is a GREAT investment opportunity for you and our community! So we are going to be at November's Sprout Growers & Makers Market to visit with current and potential owners about all that is happening with our start-up co-op. If you're interested in getting more involved, stop by and check out volunteer opportunities. Or if you're shopping for a terrific Christmas gift, buy a gift ownership for your loved one!
