Getting Great Food: Food Co-ops

Co-ops are locally owned grocery stores—with a delicious difference. What sets them apart?

  • Co-ops work hand-in-hand with local farms and food producers to bring you and your family fresh, local food. You don’t have to wait until farmers’ market day to stock up on seasonal specialties—they’re at the co-op every day!
  • Co-ops help build healthy communities. By shopping at the co-op, you become part of a community that supports sustainable production methods, healthy and delicious foods, and the growth of your local economy. Talk about great taste!
  • At the co-op, you can stock up on food, household items, cleaning supplies, toiletries, flowers, and more—and pick up lunch while you’re at it. The difference? You know you can feel good about the products you buy there. There’s an abundance of tasty, healthy food, but rest assured that you can still find delicious indulgences, too.
  • Love your co-op? Become a member! Cooperatives are open to everyone, and members become part-owners. Contact your local co-op to find out more about the wealth of member benefits.
The benefits of ownership also extend to the entire community. Co-ops keep more money in their local economy, increase the market and access for locally produced food, and prioritize business practices that are good for people and the planet.

No other grocery store is so deeply rooted right in their community.

So, if you like the idea of a neighborhood gathering place for fresh, healthy and delicious food — one that’s committed and connected to the local community — the co-op’s doors are wide open to everyone, and there’s always a seat for you at the co-op table!
