An Interview with Christina Cassano (Owner) and Chiqui Donnelly (Manager)
What is Pumpkin's Organic Market all about? Providing the community with local and sustainable organic foods and goods while providing an inviting atmosphere in which to shop while supporting small local farms, small distributors, small manufacturers, who are struggling in these times of "chain" merchandising by purchasing their high quality products for our customers.
What is the best part about your job? Control (ha)
What is your favorite product? hmmm organic chocolate covered raisins, yum
What makes you unique from other specialty markets?
We consciously weigh each decision we make concerning what products we offer environmentally, ethically and globally, and encourage our customers to do the same with their buying power.
What message do you hope to send to your shoppers? Our planet is in trouble. It is serious. We can be a part of the problem or a part of the solution.
Make sure to check these guys out. They sell lots of things in bulk - even laundry detergent - and encourage people NOT to use plastic bags (sounds like our challenge!)
