The Central Colorado FoodShed Alliance (CCFA) is a grassroots cooperative that connects farmers, food artisans and craft makers with the local community. Our mission is to help facilitate a thriving local food economy and a healthy, happy, sustainable future. We manage the Farmers Markets in Buena Vista and Salida, Colorado and we throw a huge celebration of local food, called ShedFest, at the end of each season. We also publish a Guide to Local Food to help people source locally!


Howl Mercantile & Coffee

Howl Mercantile & Coffee

Phone: 206-214-7628 | 130 W. First Street Salida, CO
Email: kimi@howlsalida.com
Website: www.howlmercantile.com

Howl is an Experiential Retail Environment that marries the disciplines of specialty coffee and the selling of craft goods. Our name Howl is a cry of protest against capitalism, exploitation, and subjugation. Our shop is about the rise of small makers and in our minds, the artisanal counterculture is a rejection of big business where outsourcing and Internet deals undercut the livelihood of the community-based entrepreneur and where quick products brought to market diminish the deliberate thought and craftsmanship of the makers. We proudly serve Corvus Coffee’s Nitro draft Cold Brew and Pour Over coffees.
