Wasatch Cooperative Market

We are an organization dedicated to giving the Salt Lake area a better food & grocery experience by establishing a cooperative market near downtown SLC.

Specifically, we aim to open a community grocery to strengthen Utah’s local food economy and provide the highest quality goods patrons can trust from farm to shelf. Our mission is to cultivate a healthy community by bringing together local producers and consumers at your community-owned grocery.

Our organization works by utilizing volunteers to recruit our  local community members to invest in the cooperative market. This investment ensures that we have a confirmed market and audience that justifies the store’s existence. With enough investors and support from the community, we will pick a location, raise further capital, and build out the grocery store.

We are not alone; there are over 300 thriving cooperative markets across the US, including several in Minnesota, Chicago, and Montana. These organizations are all founded and owned by their community members, and they work together alongside other cooperative based business to ensure success of each individual coop.

Christa’s Chocolates

Christa’s Chocolates specializes in handcrafted rice crispie treats filled with the gooey goodness of Christa’s from-scratch family recipes—salted caramels, truffles, and more. Our small-batch process features only the finest ingredients, from Guittard chocolate to love from Grandma’s kitchen. We showcase our Beehive State pride with our one-of-a-kind, Utah-inspired shapes.

Although most of the business has shifted toward gourmet rice crispies, Christa still takes orders for hand-dipped chocolates on occasion. She expanded her repertoire to more than a dozen flavors of truffles and is working to translate these delicious tastes into additional rice crispie varieties.

Christa’s Chocolates are sold in boutiques like HERE Provo and corporate cafes at companies like Younique in Lehi.

I’ve been lucky enough to try each of these products and I must say that they will not disappoint!! The Black Label is my absolute and I just can’t seem to keep enough of it in my house. The Viking Blood is very flavorful as well as spicy. The Shield Maiden has a sweet honey flavor to it and the Mustard has just the right amount of heat. I highly recommend any of these hot sauces as they have replaced most other sauces I have used in the past! Great job and I look forward to seeing what else you come up with in the future!

Really great, these sauces taste great on pizza, breakfast burritos, and any other combination. Dump the Tabasco and Cholula and get the sauce that is delicious.

I was looking for a new sauce to try and was glad I did. Z’s Original is just the right amount of extra flavor you need. They have a variety of sauces and spice levels which my husband enjoys. If you are looking for something tasty and local Z’s sauces are for you.

Nova Granola

Named for the supernovas that always caught Jane’s attention, Nova Granola began in 2010 as a search for the perfect granola.

As a runner, a teacher, and a whole food junkie, Jane was always on the lookout for quality foods. But she could never find a granola that was as healthy as it was good, or as good as it was healthy. Each bite came up too oily, sweet, grainy or hard to eat. So she set out to make her own.

With a family recipe in one hand and a vision in the other, she developed a recipe that used only whole, natural ingredients hand-selected by Jane herself. Using a dehydrator for the texture she wanted, she created the granola she had been searching for. And just like that: Nova Granola. Over the next four years, three more flavors were added: Citrus, Mango-Cherry, and Raspberry-Chocolate.

Why Supernovas?

“I am totally in awe of outer space and the beauty that comes from star explosions and galaxy dust. I get just as excited about food as I do about observing nebulae. I believe eating experiences should be as one-of-a-kind and exciting as a supernova.”

—Jane Fenton, Creator, Nova Granola

Waterpocket Distillery

Utah’s 13th licensed distillery produces a range of innovative craft spirits. Their Long Lost™ line of liqueurs recreates and reinterprets forgotten and out-of-production spirits from the golden age of botanical liqueurs in the 18th and 19th centuries. The first of these is called Oread, which is based on a formula from the city of Danzig (now Gdansk in Poland), and uses orange peel, star anise, sage, cinnamon, and ginger among other botanicals. The Toadstool™ line focuses on the deep tradition of amaros, bitters, and kräuterlikör (Ger., “herbal liqueur”) from Europe and elsewhere. The first is called Notom, named after a sleepy desert hamlet just outside of Capitol Reef National Park, gets bitterness from gentian and rhubarb root, but balances it with anise, fennel, cinnamon, and clove. Lower in sugar than similar products, the botanicals do the heavy lifting in the classic digestive style liqueur. Rum is made from raw materials at the distillery, using turbinado sugar and blackstrap molasses. And the distillery has also released an outsourced whiskey under the Robbers Roost label. Gin, kummel, and other products are planned.

Two custom made pot stills from Muller in Germany form the heart of the distillery. The larger still features advanced rectification technology and is used for fermented products. The smaller produces botanical liqueurs, extracts, and will be used for fruit brandies and eau-de-vies in the future. The energy for the plant is produced by a small steam boiler from Columbia. This produces ample steam for still operation, mashing, and the hot water the distillery uses. A development and quality control lab stays in continuous use. The distillers use a state-of-the-art Buchi rotovap vacuum distillation unit to develop, test, and quality control spirits. Experimentation and development with a wide range of tradition botanicals forms a cornerstone interest for the distillers.

A key value of the distillery is to explore the unique potential of Utah for distillation products. The state produces grain, a wide range of botanicals, and numerous fruits suitable for fermentation and distillation. The terrain could support grapes, wine, and so brandy. Mountain areas may hold the potential to grow alpine herbs or berries. There are many challenges to owning and operating a distillery in Utah. But the owners believe the solution lies with developing a group of connoisseurs and spirit lovers who share a love of this state and it’s unique potential for innovative and delicious products.

Salt of the Earth: A Limitless Production

We make a variety of gourmet season salts! We started with our original blend, which was Nicole’s grandfather’s recipe. We call it the OG, because it was the “original gangsta” season salt! From there, we created 9 more recipes, finding inspiration from our beautiful state of Utah to the ocean in San Diego. Our season salts are all blended in small batches to ensure a perfect result every time! We use Redmond Real salt, Pink Himalayan and Hawaiian salts in our blends, specifically because they are on the healthy end of the salt spectrum! You get all of the natural minerals found in these salts and you don’t need to use very much to get the impact of flavor you’re looking for.

We use fresh local ingredients to create delicious blends like the Salt City Bandito! This salt uses Redmond Real Salt, lime, cilantro and jalapeno! This is GREAT on chicken, vegetables and in guacamole. If you’re in the mood to do some grilling try our Big Kahuna! This salt features black hawaiian salt and black garlic! Black garlic is garlic that has been aged to perfection and carries a sweet balsamic flavor. Our season salts are all gluten free, no MSG, no GMO, no soy, dairy free but FLAVOR-FULL!

Salt of the Earth is tasty stuff. I personally love the O.G., Lei’d Back Mexican and My Cousin Vinny varieties. But even better than the salts (which really are good!) are the people behind this great company who teach customer service, business skills and social skills to high school students with disabilities or other struggles. Awesome company, awesome product.

Carefree Foods

Carefree Foods started when a young couple wished to see a wider variety of ready-to-eat, plant-based foods in their local grocery stores. The mission: to create access to tasty, crave-worthy foods that anyone can feel good about eating.

Our first vegan-friendly product is a tasty and versatile alternative to cheese sauce. We call it “Chease”. This stuff is one of a kind, because it is made without any dairy, tree nuts, soy, or gluten. It is free from any food allergen that is known to be worth mentioning! Use it as a dip, a topping, an ingredient while cooking… the possibilities are endless.
