Uxbridge Farmer’s Co-op
Growing up in Uxbridge the CO-OP was a thriving business and a place for all the local famers to get their supplies.
We were always told to stay away from it as kids but we were attracted to all the equipment, tractors and trucks in the parking lot. The parking lot became our short cut to get to school…shh don’t tell my mother.
It is now gone but the memories will always be there. We would love to hear your memories.
