What began in 1970 in Fairhaven as a single 900-square-foot store with fewer than 10 items has grown to a two-store 12,000-member-strong natural grocer.

At the Co-op you’ll find: a certified organic produce department with an emphasis on local; natural and sustainable meat and seafood; local and imported wine; an exciting from-scratch deli for any appetite; an espresso/smoothie bar; great housewares and fun stuff; the most bulk items in town; natural and organic grocery items; in-house baked goods (including Gluten-Free* and Vegan items); organic and hormone-free dairy products; natural supplements and wellness products; and best of all, more of your dollars stay local!

Everyone Welcome – Food may be our middle name, but Community comes first!

Why Join the Co-op?

– Community owned. Businesses need capital, co-ops get it from thousands of small investors who believe in what we do.

– Building a sustainable food economy.  Nobody works with as many local suppliers or carries as many organic products.

– Keeping the money local.   A dollar spent at a local independent business generates at least three times more direct local economic benefit than one spent at an absentee-owned chain.

– Supporting a livable community. We give back every year through donations and sponsorships to non-profits.

– Taking care of our owners. Weekly owner-only deals, special orders at a discount, owner appreciation coupons, and patronage dividends when times are good.

Go Co-op!

*Our bakery and deli items are produced in a kitchen that also uses wheat, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, and soy. While we take every precaution to avoid cross-contamination, our in-house products may contain trace amounts of allergens
