We all love food, and healthy, conscious eating has been steadily gaining more and more attention. To add to Aberdeen’s food scene, Natural Abundance recently decided to take their products beyond the walls of their store by opening a food truck. The rig is managed by the cooperative’s co-manager, Amy Crawford. She says patrons can expect to see a simple menu with juices, smoothies, sandwiches, and soups. All of their selections will be made from food that is raised organically on local farms, and their menu will adapt depending on which ingredients are in season.
If all goes as planned, the food truck kitchen will keep cooking during the fall and winter months, serving grab-and-go items available for pick up at Natural Abundance and during special events around town. But this endeavor is just one of the ways in which the cooperative is expanding their reach. Late this summer, they also took over management of the Aberdeen Farmer’s Market, as well as obtained a beer license that they’ll use to make small-batch craft beers in store. // — Jenny Roth
