Why Co-ops?

Food co-ops are similar to regular grocery stores in many ways, but it’s the differences that make co-ops special. Food co-ops are owned by folks in their communities, just like you, who value healthy, delicious food that's good for everyone. They believe that food helps us celebrate our differences and brings us together!

Everyone is welcome to shop, eat and hang out at food co-ops. And everyone is welcome to join a co-op and enjoy the benefits of being an owner. There's always great food and warm community at the co-op table — and there's always a seat for you. Welcome to the table!
