Why Become a Member?

In addition to receiving a discount on every item we offer, membership helps sustain the cooperative and keeps markups as low as possible. You also get a discount on events. Our philosophy is to serve the producer and customers alike by trying our best to eliminate the “middleman” costs experienced in a larger economic food structure. We are a grassroots program and will not succeed without your support. You can simply purchase a Community Membership (Buy-in) or Volunteer. Without members, a co-op cannot succeed.

  • You are supporting an ethical, food-based, grassroots project in your community.

How you save money

Buy-In Membership amounts to $12.50 per month. All buy-in members get 7.5% off on all purchases. If you spend $41 per week or $166.66 per month, your membership will pay for itself. After that, it’s all savings. If you’d like to get more involved, you can volunteer and receive a Work-Trade, or Shop-Supporter Membership. Volunteers who help at least 6 hours each month qualify for a Work-Trade Membership which could entail assisting in-shop, organizing orders, marketing, event support, or driving/distribution
