What is a food co-op? Why should I care?
The Community Market Food Co-op will be a full service grocery store that is owned by the members of our local community. Our grocery store will be open to all who choose to shop with us, but there will be certain benefits only available to co-op owners.
Build Something Good
By not having one single owner, profits will be reinvested back into the business or spread out amongst all share owners and kept locally. Fair, livable wages will be paid to all employees, and educational opportunities will be available to members of our community.
Support Local Producers
There will be a strong focus on providing products that are locally and regionally sourced to help stimulate and support our local economy.
Purchase with Pride
Organic and fairtrade products will be included in our inventory. Sustainability and stewardship of the earth are strong values we will incorporate into all parts of our business.
Every share purchased affords its owner to one vote on important co-op business. You will get a chance to influence your local food co-op in a way no other grocery store can match.
