The Local List


Hello Spoonful readers! My name is Román Diaz, the new General Manager at the Common Market. Before we get into the updates that matter most to you, I want to quickly express how happy I am to be a part of this community and how excited I am for the future of the co-op. Starting a new job can be nerve-wracking at any organization, throw in a global pandemic and assimilating to a new environment can be exponentially more difficult. However, the team, the Board, and the community here have made me feel so welcomed that I sometimes forget that I’m wearing a mask and trying to keep my physical distance from others as much as possible all day. This has been the best onboarding experience I’ve had in my over 20 years in the industry so from the bottom of my heart, Thank You to everyone that has made this process so seamless. OK, onto something that you really want to hear about – the 7th Street location. As most of you are aware, we are opening our second store after being in business for 46 years! A HUGE thanks to our employees, members, customers, community and vendors for all your continued support! As of August 24th, we are on track to open mid-September. The new store will be a local jewel, bringing over 70 new jobs to the area. Built to be more environmentally friendly with a wider variety of products, we will continue

to push local and organic products that serve to benefit your health and the community. Some features worth highlighting: A brand new café with a revised menu; wider variety of local meats and produce; expanded wellness, grocery, dairy, and frozen departments, and a pet section to rival the best pet shops in the area. We, of course, will continue to provide the same great customer service you are accustomed to – just because we’re getting bigger doesn’t mean we’re losing our core values! Since our beginnings in 1974 our focus has been on supporting our local community, and in today’s new reality, that initiative is more relevant than ever. The best way to bring back the economy is to support local. That is why, in addition to stocking local products we worked with our local Woodsboro Bank and used mostly local contractors to build the new store; Bates Architects, City of Frederick Economic Development, D Impression Signs, Eco Developers, Graphcom, Miles & Stockbridge, Warner Commercial, Waynesboro Construction and Xecunet. And we are so proud of all of them for the amazing job they have done and continue to do. Some love for the Route 85 Store: While a lot of the attention in the press and in the community has been on opening the new store, I do want to make sure everyone knows that our Route 85 location, which you all have known and loved for all these years will continue to provide the community fresh, local and organic products with the same great customer service that has helped us become Frederick’s go-to for local. I look forward to all that we will accomplish in the near and long-term future.

First, the Board wants to express our gratitude to Sarah Lebherz, our CFO, and Max Smith, our Store Manager, for stepping into the roles of Interim Management Team for the last several months, and keeping the store safe AND thriving under extraordinary circumstances. Likewise, we are SO thankful to our amazing Staff, for adapting to new circumstances - sometimes every day - with conscientiousness, good cheer, and skill. So many aspects of operating a successful grocery store in these times were (and are) uncertain and risky, and these folks just kept on showing up, in a heroic and steadfast way. Our co-op and community are grateful. Next, the Board is delighted to welcome Román Diaz as our General Manager - we think he’s just terrific, and we know you’ll think so, too. He’s got lots of experience in the world of grocery-stores-with-values, he believes in building skills and encouraging talent in his crew, and he’s a heck of a nice guy. Thank you for joining us, Román!

And big cheers for our new 7th Street store! In these days of COVID and quarantine, some days I feel like the outside world is barely substantial; like it’s sort of a misty dreamscape. Well, some of the Board got a tour of the new store recently - and hey, it’s real! There’s about to be an actual grocery store there, full of produce and hot sauce and vegan popsicles and supplements and pet supplies and people smiling behind their masks. So much appreciation for all the folks who have worked, and are continuing to work, to make it real! Lastly, stay tuned for some new ways that the Board’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee will be serving the community. This is all still in development, but among other things, you should look for some interesting speakers to be giving short talks at our virtual Board meetings, open to all Owners. I can’t say more than that yet, but we’ll keep you updated. I can’t wait to see you all at our shiny new 7th Street store and at our old beloved Route 85 store.

Yours in cooperation,

Annie Marshall, Vice President, The Common Market Board of Directors

This team has helped us manage our project expenses, research options on plan development and problem-solve every step of the way. Thank you to this team for working together to support a strong local food system for our community. This project is creating many new jobs and supports even more local farmers, food producers and small businesses, as well as allows us to serve more co-op owners and customers in the Frederick community. We can’t wait to see you in the aisles at 7th Street!

The Great Pumpkin By Morganne Klein

Pumpkin is everywhere, even before the official start of Fall. Pumpkin spice lattes, muffins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin flavored treats—we always use pumpkin the sweet way. There are plenty of delicious savory treatments for pumpkin that we're all missing out on. Here, we've rounded up some tasty pumpkin snacks, sides, and main dishes to serve to your Fall guests or family for dinner.

Make your own purée! Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove the stem by slicing off the top of a 4 - 6 pound pumpkin and split the pumpkin down the middle. Scoop out the seeds and fibers (save those seeds!). Sprinkle the pumpkin flesh with a little bit of salt and lay the halves flesh side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast until a knife inserts and removes easily from the pumpkin, then cool the pumpkin for an hour. Scoop the flesh off of the skins into the bowl of a food processor and process until completely smooth, 3 - 4 minutes. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months. It's easy to make your own purée for your favorite pumpkin recipes! Adapted from foodnetwork.com

5-Minute Smoky Pumpkin Hummus

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Ingredients 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds 2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil salt seasonings Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Rinse pumpkin seeds to remove strings and pulp. Toss pumpkin seeds in a bowl with oil and seasonings of your choice. Whether its sea salt only, salt and pepper, curry powder, Italian seasonings, ranch seasonings, or even cinnamon and sugar—the possibilities are endless! Spread the seasoned pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast seeds for 25 - 45 minutes (depending on your oven and desired crunchiness) until golden brown, turning the seeds every 10 minutes Adapted from food.com

Harvest Pumpkin Soup


5-Minute Smoky Pumpkin Hummus

Pumpkin Ricotta Stuffed Shells

Ingredients 1 15 oz can chickpeas (drained & rinsed) 1 cup pumpkin purée (homemade or canned) 1/4 cup tahini 2 garlic cloves 1 tbsp agave (optional) 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder (or chili powder) 1/4 tsp cinnamon 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (optional)

Ingredients 24 jumbo pasta shells 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 22 oz fat-free ricotta 15 oz pumpkin purée (homemade or canned) 2 1/2 oz Pecorino Romano 1 large egg white 2 cloves garlic 1 cup fresh basil 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh sage 1 tsp salt 1 tsp freshly ground pepper 1 jar store bought tomato sauce

Place all ingredients (except pumpkin seeds) into a food processor and blend until smooth. Removing chickpea skins will result in a smoother hummus. If your hummus is too thick, add a little more agave, olive oil, or lemon juice. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with a sprinkle of chipotle powder and pumpkin seeds. Serve with pretzels, popcorn, veggies, pita, or your other favorite dipping snack! Recipe from The Every Kitchen. theeverykitchen. com/5-minute-smoky-pumpkin-hummus/

Harvest Pumpkin Soup Ingredients 2 tbsp unsalted butter 1 large potato, chopped 1 large onion, chopped 4 1/2 cups chicken broth 15 oz pumpkin purée (homemade or canned) salt & pepper 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 1/2 pint heavy cream

Cook pasta shells according to package; drain. Transfer to a baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Set aside and cool. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together ricotta, pumpkin, 3/4 cup Pecorino Romano, and remaining ingredients, except tomato sauce. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread sauce in bottom of a 9x13 in baking dish. Fill each pasta shell with about 3 tbsp ricottapumpkin mixture and arrange in pan. Cover pan with foil and bake for 30 min. Remove foil, sprinkle with remaining Pecorino, and bake for 15 mins more. (Shells can be stuffed the night before and refrigerated overnight in an airtight container. Arrange shells on sauce before baking.) Recipe from Country Living countryliving. com/food-drinks/recipes/a3921/pumpkinricotta-stuffed-shells-recipe-clv1011/

In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add potato and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 8 mins. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook until potato is tender, about 10 - 12 mins. Stir in pumpkin. Transfer to a blender and puree in batches until smooth, or use an immersion blender to purée. Stir in salt and pepper to taste along with the nutmeg. Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 10 mins. Stir in cream and heat thoroughly. Taste and season with more salt and pepper as desired. Serve hot. Recipe from Country Living countryliving. com/food-drinks/recipes/a4117/harvestpumpkin-soup-recipe-clv1112/

on 7th Street: What's The Deal? We've rounded up the most common questions we have received about our 7th Street Expansion and answered them for you here and at commonmarket.coop/about/ expansion/common-market-on-7th-street

Can I shop at Common Market Co-Op if I’m not an owner? Yes! Everyone can shop. Anyone can own. Ownership is about more than investing in wise choices for your health; it’s about investing as a partner in the business. The Common Market measures its success through a threetiered bottom line–people, planet, profit–that correlates to social, environmental, and economic development. We believe a business should be a positive contributor to the local community. We make a conscious effort to give back to our growing community in a variety of ways to show our gratitude for the community’s support of the co-op. We are here because we want the health of our families, our planet, and our store to grow. Do you want to be a part of this movement? Take a look at the benefits, rights, and responsibilities of a Common Market owner, fill out the online form, make a payment, and become an owner today! Visit commonmarket.coop/about/own-it

Did the Common Market purchase the building? Yes! With savings, investments from Owners, and financing from Woodsboro Bank we were able to purchase the 7th Street location. The staff and Board went through a detailed due diligence period to ensure our purchase was a sound decision. We are proud to have this investment on the books as it gives us greater collateral to leverage for current and future financing needs.

22

Who will work at the 7th Street store? Common Market will hire over 70 new employees to staff both Rt. 85 and 7th Street locations. We have made it a priority to hire and promote individuals within our organization. If you are interested in working with Common Market, visit commonmarket.coop/connect/jobs to apply one of our open positions today!

Will the 7th Street location offer the same goods and services that the Rt. 85 location currently offers? Common Market prides itself on continuing many of the great services and offering many of the products you have come to love at the Rt. 85 store. But with expansion comes additional services and product selections. Refer back to page 8 for those details!

What will expansion mean for local producers and farmers? We look forward to expanding current partnerships and building new relationships with local farmers and producers. Interested in having your product in our store? Fill out our New Vendor Form at commonmarket.coop/connect/new-vendor-form

What does this mean for pricing? Access and affordability is necessary, which is why we offer more affordable options and our affordable store brand, Field Day, in addition to Coop Deals and Market Deals.
