The Central Area Collaborative, in partnership with New Seasons Market Community Manager,
Karinda Harris, organized a meeting on 16 January 2018 with Central Area business owners and
local organizations. The group developed strategies for communicating information with the
following key talking points
  • New Vendor Information Event: Potential vendors meet with New Seasons staff to
    share the types of goods and services they can offer the grocer. This event is in the
    planning stages with the date/time TBD within the first quarter 2018.
  • New Vendor Online Information: Central Area vendors are invited to complete/provide the required
    documentation to become a New Seasons vendor as outlined at the following web site:
  • New Seasons Logistical Distribution Network: The grocer is amenable to allowing the
    community to use its logistical distribution network, or deliver to stores individually. New Season
    touts this as one of their differentiating bonuses for local market vendors.
