2011 promises to be a year of transformations for GreenStar. It is also a year to celebrate our growth and accomplishments 40 years after the 1971 founding of the Ithaca Real Foods Co-op, a group buying co-op. The business eventually became GreenStar Cooperative Market, and was incorporated on Winter Solstice, Dec. 22, 1982.
