Help Us Open the Co-op!

We will introduce a full service grocery store owned by the community with the launch of Wasatch Cooperative Market. Members join neighbors and friends dedicated to having a voice in the sources of their food, and Salt Lake City will join more than 350 communities across the country that have cooperative grocery stores.

What Wasatch Cooperative Market will offer:

  • A wide selection of local, high quality, fairly priced products
  • A brick-and-mortar store open to the public
  • Dedication to supporting local farmers and producers and enabling healthy choices by bringing sutainable products, services, and education to our community
  • Building a strong local economy

While we are organizing the business, we are also growing the community support necessary to open our doors. We invite you to strengthen our food system and vote with your purchasing power. Click on the "Become A Member-Owner" tab and become a founding member-owner today. 

There are two striking differences between Wasatch Cooperative Market and a conventional grocery store:

1. The Co-op reflects the values and desires of our community because hundreds--at some point, thousands--of community members own and control it.

2. The Co-op is committed to the Seven Cooperative Principles: voluntary and open membership; democratic member control; member economic participation; autonomy and independence; education, training, and information; cooperation among cooperatives; and concern for the community.

    Co-op Volunteers Crush Compost Piles at Recent Farm Mob!

    Before the Co-op opens its store, providing a greatly expanded market to local farmers, our volunteers are helping farmers succeed by helping with farm chores. Good composting is at the heart of excellent farming. And Co-op volunteers were instrumental in helping Gobo Farms advance their work by turning four humongous compost piles in three hours! At the end of the afternnoon, Scott, owner of Gobo Farm, guided volunteers in building a new compost pile--alternating layers of green, brown material, manure and dirt in the correct proportions.
