This week, we speak with Andrea Buttrick of the Food Conspiracy Co-Op on Fourth Avenue, we’re going to get a look back and a look forward on this community grocer.
Today is June 27th, my name is Tom Heath and you’re listening to “Life Along the Streetcar”.
Each and every Sunday our focus is on Social, Cultural and Economic impacts in Tucson’s Urban Core and we shed light on hidden gems everyone should know about. From A Mountain to the U of A and all stops in between. You get the inside track- right here on 99.1 FM, streaming on DowntownRadio.org– we’re also available on your iPhone or Android using our very own Downtown Radio app.

Our intro music is by Ryanhood and we exit with music from Rafi, “The Corner Grocery Store.”
Food and Community
Food Conspiracy Co-Op on Fourth Avenue, they’ve been there for 50 years and if you’ve been down there, you know there’s an entrance on 4th Avenue and there’s some parking behind it, but it’s sometimes we got to walk around the building to get there.
Well, we found out not too long ago that they are putting in an East entrance and in exploring that we realize they are doing a huge remodel all the way over to 3rd. So we have Andrea Buttrick on the show today, we spoke with her just a couple of days ago by phone and she shared with us the importance of having the Food Conspiracy Co-Op at our community and what we can expect here in the future.
