And it's super easy.
Normally you have to be a member to purchase goods from their website, but they also have a handful of Open House Markets for anyone to come, feel, taste, and buy.
The most recent one was last night, and I was there as a vendor, wearing my Eventual Farmer hat, er, ... apron.
The goods are available online for pre-purchase. Or you can just come to the market and make your choices then.
The market is held twice monthly in an aging warehouse, which, despite the semi-truck loading docks
and decrepit doors,
added to the overall charm of the event.
Lunasa exists because people believe in it. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful apples,
hardy root veggies,
enchanting cutting boards (from reclaimed urban lumber, I might add),
notecards hand painted with Michigan wildlife,
mittens in the shape of my home state,
and live music?
But I think my favorite moment of the event happened just a few minutes into it, when I heard the vendor behind me say to a customer, "I'm sorry but I only have seven varieties of hummus here tonight."
Keeping your dollars local just got easy.
