Ten years of Central City Co-Op

Happy tenth birthday to Central City Co-op, the best source in town for organic and locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary year, the Central City Co-Op is also almost unrecognizable — but also much stronger and wiser. What had started on the porch of Pat Greer’s oldest daughter, Jennifer Georgantas, is now a efficient operation of about 50 volunteers feeding 240 families, as well as six partner co-ops ranging from Clear Lake and Sugar Land to northwest Houston and Humble.

A community of like-minded people, CCC is a place where Houstonians can find organic local food, colorful personalities and veggie goodness. The friendships, rather “sisterhood” of the ladies behind Central City Co-Op, perhaps somewhat akin to the women in Steel Magnolias, begins with small-talk chatter, as they quietly set up for yet another Wednesday, as they have for the last nine years.

As I have mentioned before, my wife Tiffany Tyler is the chair of the Central City board, so I have a personal stake in this. But we’ve been customers for a lot longer than that, so I’d be wishing them a happy birthday, anyway. If you’re not familiar with Central City Co-op, you should check them out.
