ALACHUA COUNTY, FL – A new edition of Alachua County Talks featuring an interview with Citizens Co-op Co-founder and Financial Manager Gretchen McIntyre premiers Friday February 7, 2014 on Community 12 TV at 7:30 p.m. Since 2011, the Citizens Co-op Community-owned Market has been providing shoppers a broad selection of natural foods and products from local producers, as well as featuring natural products from national and international sources.

In speaking of the program Alachua County Talks host Mark Sexton said, “The Citizen’s Co-op is a great resource for people interested in natural foods and organically grown produce. I had the pleasure of interviewing Gretchen four years ago when the co-op was still on the drawing board. It is amazing to see how far it has come.”
