We're Only 70 Member-Owners Away from Launching a Site Search!

The Co-op is now 530 co-owners strong! When we reach 600, we will be able to launch the search for a location. Our mission is to open a full service community-owned grocery the brings together local producers and consumers to cultivate a healthy community. Co-owners have a voice in sourcing their food, as part of a nationwide movement with more than 350 communities that have thriving 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.
