Dryden-based Cloverbelt Local Food Co-Op is expanding.

Distribution Centres in Fort Frances and Atikokan will soon allow members to pick-up product obtained through the Co-Op's on-line farmers market.

Community Coordinator Anita Marcotte says the program is beginning to take hold in northwestern Ontario.

She says when she started in May, 2017, there were only six producing members in the Rainy River district.

Marcotte says that has now grown to 40.

The Co-op also set-up a hub last Fall in Emo.
