Are you interested in becoming a producer, supplier, or vendor with us? If so, please read below and apply today!
One of the Lovettsville Co-op’s primary goals is to showcase local products grown and created as close to the store as possible. Another is to inspire regenerative processes that renew and sustain our natural resources organically. To these ends, we are looking across DelMarVa within the Chesapeake Watershed for farmers, ranchers and value added producers to supply our store with their wares. The list of possibilities spans grocery categories, as well as crafts, beer and wine.
In anticipation of our store opening in Summer 2023, already we are receiving significant interest from growers and processors who want to become part of our family of suppliers/partners. While we are still refining our producer acceptance criteria and working policies, we want to begin the process of engaging potential providers. At this stage, we would like you to send us information about you, your business, your growing practices (if you are a farmer), and the products you propose to sell to the Co-op.
Your response and application are not a contract offer of acceptance, nor any other commitment by the Co-op for your services or products at this time. During the next 6 months, we will respond to your completed survey with requests for additional information, requests to visit your business location, to provide engagement policies and contract terms and conditions. We will advise you of our decision after completing this review process. In the meantime, if any producer-related questions, please send to us at Producers@lovettsville-grocery.com.
Thank you for your interest in the Co-op and we look forward to receiving your application.
