Jeanette Hamilton has been named the new general manager of the downtown Spokane food co-op, Main Market Cooperative, at 44 W. Main.

In May of this year the market's board made Hamilton its interim GM. The co-op launched in early 2010 and has revised its business plan slightly to attract more customers. It now has about 1,300 members.

Hamilton was hired in December 2009 as assistant manager. Her co-op experience includes stints as a manager with the North Coast Cooperative in Eureka and a second one, in Tonasket.

She has also worked in management for Spokane-based Yoke's Fresh Markets.
