Describe your organization or gallery
River Valley Market is a community owned retail food co-op specializing in fresh, local, and organically grown foods. River Valley Market is open 9-9 daily. Membership is not required. River Valley Market values the role of the arts in the community. Our Quarry Cafe seating area features works by a different local artist monthly. Our front entryway features a permanent ceramic/wood installation by local artist Emmett Leader. Througout the store there are photographs related to local farmers and foods by several area photographers. A large wall mural painting by local artist Jonathan Kohrman is featured in the fresh produce department. Also on display is a handmade quilt by Bette Sokolowski (with support from the member outreach committee) made from the t-shirts of 48 other food co-ops from across the country that helped support River Valley Market during its development stage.
