Farmers markets are great during the growing season, but when the last veggies are yanked from the soil, the clientele drops off like autumn leaves. To weather the harsh winter, three Meridian Farmers Market vendors joined forces to open a year-round cooperative storefront. The Dhondalicious Artisan Food Co-op is located on Fairview Avenue between Milwaukee Street and Maple Grove Road, and features Dhondalicious butter toffees, Ruth Joanne's bakery and Luis's Place restaurant. Tamales, delicate toffee candies and breads made from house-milled, local whole grains--now that's cooperation we'll stand behind.
