Kristen Yartz serves as Three Rivers Market’s Cooperative Relations Administrator where she manages member-owner records, is responsible for the monthly newsletter development and design and provides administrative support to the co-op’s Board of Directors. She joined the co-op as a staff member in February 2001. During her employment at the co-op, the member-owner total has grown to 10,997 folks.

Kristen was born and raised in an Appalachian region of western Pennyslvania. Her family were members at a short-lived local food co-op in her hometown, and she grew up eating fresh produce from her Dad’s extensive garden and later from local Amish and Mennonite growers.

She has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, a Bachelor of Arts in English, and a Masters in Comparative Asian Societies. As an undergraduate, Kristen studied abroad in Australia where she met her future husband through the bushwalking club. In total she lived for 5 years in Brisbane and during that time became a dual citizen.

Throughout her career Kristen has held roles in local government, non-profits, ELICOS and retail. She and her husband moved to Knoxville in late 2000, with a visit to the old Knoxville Community Food co-op as one of their first stops in evaluating the area, followed by the local library, the campus of UT and a deep read of The Metro Pulse and the Knoxville News Sentinel. Kristen volunteered at the co-op for several months and joined the team shortly after the new (now former) General Manager was hired.

At Three Rivers Market, she developed the recycling program at the co-op where reusable packaging materials are donated to a locally owned shipping company rather than thrown away. She is also actively involved in TRM’s weekly donations of cardboard trays to Young-Williams Animal Center. Outside the co-op, Kristen established, owned and operated Little Red Hen Consignment Tagging Service for eight years in Knoxville’s secondhand children’s clothing market before selling the business.

Many long-term members and shoppers may remember Kristen working at the old co-op in an administrative capacity with her two daughters when they were babies in carriers. These co-op kids are now a sophomore in college (studying Environmental Science) and a junior in high school, respectively. Kristen firmly believes their overall health throughout their lives thus far is directly connected to the quality organic and local co-op sourced food that has formed the basis of their diet. Her favorite local produce items are Arugula from Hines Valley Farm and carrots from Spencer Mountain.

Kristen is a lover of trees, hikes, hummingbirds, and the natural world.

Anyone can shop, anyone can join – this idea is a foundational value of Three Rivers Market, and this inclusive approach is an integral part of our identity. As is democratic member control.

Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who can have a voice in setting policies and in making decisions, and Directors serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. Members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote), and at Three Rivers it’s time to exercise your franchise.
