Wild Carrot Workers Co-Operative
Buxton’s Independent Wholefood & Organic Store
Wild Carrot (aka Bridge Street Workers Co-op ) came into existence in August 1996 when it became clear that in it’s previous incarnation, Dandelion Days, it was going to close, leaving Buxton and the surrounding area without an independent vegetarian and organic shop. Therefore a group of local people banded together, raised some funds, formed a co-operative and purchased the business.
We set up as a co-operative because we supported the idea of mutual aid as a successful model for a business. Setting ourselves up as equally responsible meant we would all be pulling in the same direction, namely that of creating a successful and happy business. It was, and still is, obvious to us that if we are all interested in the well-being of the company, then we will all work together for the common benefit. Through unity is strength.
We also based the business on the underlying principle of a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle based on a very tasty eating experience! We genuinely know and care about what we sell. This means we do not stock products that are genetically modified or involve animal cruelty. We place a strong emphasis on organic, locally produced goods and fair-traded products.
