French Broad Food Co+Op

About Us

About the Co-op

The French Broad Food Co-op is a grocery store that focuses more on people than profit. We do that by providing a livable wage, supporting local farmers & producers and being community owned.

Ownership means you get to have a voice in how the co-op functions, what kinds of products are carried, the policies that govern the business and who is elected to uphold those policies.  This is a no-sellout scenario.

Our produce department is 100% organic and we boast the bulkiest bulk department in the SE, possibly the nation.  We have a basics program that keeps staple items affordably priced, and a diverse staff both part time and full time.

Everyone can shop, anyone can join.  You should become an owner today, because nowhere else will your dollars have a greater impact in the local economy.

We are dedicated to serving our owners and the WNC community by providing high quality natural foods and personal care products through a mutually beneficial exchange.

We support consumption of healthful and organic foods, grown or produced locally with ecological and social responsibility.

  • We encourage informed choice and consumer empowerment, with and emphasis on education and customer assistance.

  • We are committed to use profits to strengthen and improve the Co-op community and to provide a livable wage to our employees.

  • We pledge to maintain a pleasant environment that fosters goodwill, cooperation and participation.
