Local Sprouts Cooperative focuses on providing creative local and organic food.  This is our menu for catering and our community supported kitchen (CSK).   We serve local and seasonal foods, so our menu changes through the seasons.  The CSK will draw from this menu and offer weekly selections with more specials.

We make delicious local food for meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans and people with food allergies.
For catering orders  there is a minimum of 6 people per item.  For the CSK we will pick certain items from our menu and offer the item per serving. 
For more info about the CSK go here.  For more info about Catering go here

Also if you don't see something you want, ask us and we'd love to cook it!
