Ownership

Being a member-owner of Mississippi Market means being able to buy fresh, local food.

- Melodie

To become a member-owner of Mississippi Market Co-op means choosing to follow a strong tradition: maintaining access to high quality food and other natural products, joining with neighbors to build a stronger community and supporting a sustainable regional economy.

Regardless of whether you decide to join our co-op or not, you will be welcome in our stores. Everyone is welcome to shop at the co-op!

Joining Mississippi Market Co-op is simple: just drop by either of our stores and ask one of our cashiers for a membership agreement, fill out the information, and choose either a one-time stock investment of $90 or a payment plan.

Giving a membership as a gift?  It’s simple.  We’ll supply the greeting card and a special gift card redeemable for a $90 membership.  The recipient can activate their membership when they bring in the card to any store location.
