Bartertown Diner Open SignThe worker-owned and collectively run restaurant Bartertown Diner & Roc’s Cakes has opened in downtown Grand Rapids. The restaurant—which features vegan, vegetarian, and raw foods—is affiliated with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and is a union shop.

Bartertown describes itself as a:

… vegi/vegan/raw, worker owned and operated diner. The goal of the restaurant is to promote fresh, local ingredients along with a positive, fair working environment.

In a city with few radical spaces and co-operatives, it’s exciting to see the restaurant finally open. Check out their hours and stop in if you are able.
