Your Local Food Co-op…

             When you “Opt for the Co-op”, you Shop, Support & Sustain our Community!

A Food Cooperative (Co-op) is a consumer-owned grocery store meaning that it’s owned by people like you and me!  And when The Community Market Co-op opens, it will be a comprehensive place for area residents to buy local, organic and Fair Trade products as well as be a “destination location” for community gatherings, events and more.
