ARTBEAT 2016 - Downtown South Bend - Postponed to SUNDAY, August 21

We're looking forward to ARTBEAT - SUNDAY, August 21 (postponed from Saturday due to very likely rain) 11am- 7pm.  Purple Porch will be in the Culinary Village on the gridiron - between Michigan St. and the old Hall of Fame building.  See for more details.

We'll have Blueberry Lemonade Slushies - made with organic lemon juice and organic local blueberries (The Blueberry Ranch) and Presto Kombucha (Indianapolis) on tap.

100% of profits for ArtBeat Sales will help fund Arts projects at Purple Porch Co-op in the upcoming year.


Ordering is Friday noon through Monday 7pm - Click on the link and Bookmark it in your web browser.  Everyone is welcome to use this online ordering system. Or just show up - meet your local producers on Wednesday 4:30-7:30pm.   

Member-owner Sales

Look for the YELLOW price tags in the store (not to be confused with the unfortunately similar color of yellow-green) that has MBR SALE! on them.  We're passing on the savings to our Member-owners.

In August, look for sales on:

  • Newman's Own and Annie's organic Cookies
  • Wallaby Organic Yogurt (32oz)
  • Kind granola/breakfast bars (boxes)
  • Mom's Cereals - all varieties

What's Up with the Parking Lot

The good news - we finally got the asphalt sealed and the potholes fixed - much needed!  The downside - as some of you have pointed out - our disabled parking spot has not been painted yet.  We want you to know that we are working on this issue and hope to make it very clear very soon that the first spot in our lot is reserved for disabled car drivers/riders.

PPC Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors meets once every month - Third Thursday 7:30pm - 9:30pm.  The first 10-15 minutes are always reserved for Member-owners to participate. As a Member-owner - you are welcome.  Do you have questions for the Board?  Ideas on how to make the Co-op better?  This is your time.  Next meeting is Thursday, September 15.
Location: the lower level of EmNet - just down the street from the Co-op in the Emporium building.  Go in the front door and down the stairs on the left.  There is another way to get in - with only a few exterior stairs - in the back.
