Excuse Our Dust...

Things have been quiet here at Diggin' In, but Local Roots Market has been a hive of activity since Christmas! The renovations of the building continue, but we're making great progress. So far, our excellent volunteers and a handful of local contractors have worked on the following:

--stripped carpet from the main retail floor and the meeting room
--refinished the concrete floor in both areas
--took down the flimsy wallboard on one side of the main retail floor
--installed new electrical wiring for new coolers and freezer
--installed new drywall to replace the removed wall
--painted the main retail space and the meeting room
--replaced the furnace in the meeting room
--purchased the first equipment from our ODA grant: coolers, freezer, sinks
--relocated the bathroom door to make room for work sinks
--installed new plumbing for the new sinks and for the new coffee bar
--started construction of the coffee bar (with cabinetry and storage space)
--started cleaning up

More work needs to be done through next week, but we are still on track to hold our Midwinter Open House this coming Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM. Stop by to see what's going on and to learn how to use the online order system.

(If anyone has photos from any of the work days that they'd like to share here on the blog or in the monthly newsletter, please send them to news (AT) localrootswooster (DOT) com and we'll be happy to post them!)

Producer members: Don't forget our producer meeting at the market tomorrow -- Thursday, January 21 -- at 8 PM. We'll talk about the online order system as well as how things will be set up in the market and get your ideas for how to make it all work smoothly.

See you soon!
