Who, What, When, SHARE: Tell Your Friends and Family   

Who we are: SHARE-WS is a food justice nonprofit opening a cooperative grocery store in one of Winston-Salem's 21 food deserts. We are a cooperative, meaning we rely on the support of our member-owners and larger community to operate. 
What we do: We are currently functioning as the Harvest Mini Market, at 663 Peters Creek Parkway.  We plan to open our larger full service store, in the West Salem Shopping Center, before the end of 2021.  You do not have to be a member to shop at the Harvest Mini Market. Anyone is welcome to shop! We accept all manner of payments, including SNAP.
Where we are going: Once we open the main store, we will continue to reinvest into the immediate community by providing nutrition and cooking classes, particularly how to cook produce and products they may not be familiar with. We are also excited to be able to create new jobs and job training. 

*Fall Membership Drive*
Presently, our number of Member/Owners is approaching "500"

Our GOAL is to add 200 new Member/Owners
before the store opening in June 2022. 

We are challenging each of our members to "Add a new Member."

We will give prizes to the person who signs up the most New Members. Additionally, both the sponsor, and each new members will receive a $5.00 SHARE Buck to redeem at the Harvest Market.


*These coupons are available to anyone who visits the Harvest Market.

Food Facts
  • Broccoli sprouts are so full of potent anti-cancer compounds that John Hopkins University tried to patent them! 
  • Avocados are the Aztec symbol of love and fertility because they cannot self-pollinate, and they grow in pairs on trees. 
  • Lemons turn green to yellow because of temperature changes, not ripeness, so green patches are OK, but avoid those with brown spots because that means rotting! 
  • Lemons help digest fats, reduce inflammation, and boost your immune system. 
  • Bananas may be considered a mood enhancer because they contain the amino acid, tryptophan and Vitamin B6 which helps the body produce serotonin.
