Earth Day, held every year on April 22, is fast approaching, and the Sugar Beet Food Co-op is looking for nominees for its annual Earth Day Grant.
The neighborhood grocer donates 5 percent of its sales that day to the winning organization. Nominations are due by the end of the day on March 18 and can be submitted at here.
Also in Sugar Beet news, the popularity of its indoor farmer’s market has inspired the store to schedule two more events on March 24 and April 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The store held its first Winter European Market at a space just north of the Sugar Beet, 422 S. Grove Ave., in January.
