Our Mission: Working together to build a sustainable community, while treating all people with kindness and fairness.

We ensure the availability of high-quality safe food at fair prices with an emphasis on local, organic, fairly traded, and natural goods. We create an educated, empowered, and engaged community that thinks and cares about food, health, and sustainability. We develop a robust cooperative economy.
