What is a food co-op? It is a grocery store owned by its members.
What can you buy at a food co-op? All your basic groceries.
How is a co-op different? We will buy from local farmers and farms that care about what goes into the food we eat. Farms that use organic and sustainable practices.
Do you have to be a member to shop? No, but Co-op Members will be eligible for Member Perks (special offers for members) and can earn dividends on their purchases.
How much does it cost to join? Membership is a one time $150 payment. Just once, not annually. When you join, you will own part of the co-op, too.
Who is in charge? The Merrimack Valley Food Co-op is being planned by people in your neighborhood. People just like you. Join us to be part of the co-op today!
