In The News

Wasatch Cooperative Market is connecting and creating community in our beloved "Small Lake City". Cooperatives work for sustainable development of their communities through policies supported by the membership. This goal is echoed in our community by some of SLC's very own change makers. 

Grow • Fund • Build
Phase 1 Campaign

We met our minimum goal! 

The final tally of funds raised is $288,000 exceeding the minimum of $250,000 needed to keep the project moving forward. Due to the generosity of our owners who participated, the average gift exceeded the national average of $3000 by a few dollars.

Our Member-Owner Meeting was a Success!

Thank you to everyone who attended in person, joined virtually, or cheered us on from afar! You are a monumental part of our success. It is so uplifting when we gather together, experience community through shared values, and have time to envision the Co-op's future we are building.

WCM Surveyed Their Member-Owners
on How they Heard About Wasatch Co-op

A majority of individuals hear about the Co-op through a friend or word of mouth. Spreading the word about the Co-op is essential to our growth. We heard some great ideas on ways to help member-owners feel comfortable spreading the word during the annual meeting. If you have other ideas, send us an email. We want to hear from you!
