The Torch Lake Co-op formed in 2020 as a pandemic response, but it has worked so well for shoppers and producers alike that we are making it into a legacy project! Shop for local food groceries twice a week, year-round with convenient pickups and delivery options in Bellaire, Williamsburg, Elk Rapids, and Traverse City. This is an amazingly efficient way to plan your seasonal menus, buy (and sell!) your local food and plants from multiple farmers, growers, and chefs,
all in one place!
Please join our weekly newsletter to keep up to date with co-op news.
Our Spring Plant Catalog is a look book that introduces all the plants produced by the growers of the Torch Lake Co-op. On Earth Day the online store plant cycles open so you can schedule and purchase your spring starts. First available pickup is on May 20th, but order early to ensure you get what you want. Let our nurseries take care of your seedlings and transplants until you're ready- you can make multiple orders with different pickup days so you can plan your gardening time and not get overwhelmed with too many plants on one day.
Local farmers and growers have joined forces to streamline your local food ordering needs. They include Daybreak Dreamfarm, Witt Family Farm, King Orchards, Grass Lake Road Farm Stand, Fainting Robin Farm, Wagbo Farm & Education Center, Tanglemere Farms, Bellaire Nursery, Lel's Lil Acre, Buckwheat's Market Garden, Grass Lake Organics, and Joli Cochon. We also offer products from Sobremesa Tamales, Shorties Shortbread, Harwood Gold, Grand Traverse Sauce Company, Mundo's Coffee, and Ken’s Fresh Fish ‘N Tales.
