Today and everyday, Mississippi Market honors the contributions that African-Americans have made and continue to make to the cooperative movement.
Our Community Partner Program provides additional benefits to co-op member-owners while strengthening the connection between them and local, sustainable, independently-owned businesses.

Become one today to receive great discounts at other local businesses.
February’s Positive Change recipient is Open Hands Midway, a nonprofit that provides food, clothing, household goods, personal supplies, and more free of charge to people in Saint Paul’s Midway neighborhood.
