Join the co-op today and save money while supporting a robust local food economy. Simply drop by any of our three store locations and ask a cashier for a membership agreement. Fill out the requested information and choose a one-time stock investment of $90, a 2-year payment plan, or a $12 LIME membership.

There is no requirement to volunteer your time or work at the co-op in order to become a member. Once paid in full, your co-op membership is refundable should you move away or change your mind. The membership investment only has to be paid in full once and is not a reoccurring annual fee.

Everyone is welcome to shop at the co-op! Regardless of whether you decide to become a co-op member or not, you are always welcome to shop at our stores.
