Learn About Our Co-op

Wild Onion Market is an independent, democratically run, community owned full-service grocery store that will be located in the Rogers Park/Evanston area. We are a cooperative of individuals united by our commitment to take control of our grocery experience. What started as a conversation in the living room of a Rogers Park apartment will soon be a vibrant community-owned grocery store where we can make consumer choices that reflect our shared values. Our food co-op will specialize in local, organic, natural, fairly traded and sustainable foods.

We are a community of wild onions. Resilient. Robust. Intertwined. Layered with personality. We grow together.

Our Core Values

We are an intentionally inclusive community with the following core values:

Healthy food access for all

Fresh, healthy food is a right, not a privilege. We are creating policies to ensure that our food supply is affordable, fresh, pesticide-free and nutritious.

A resilient local food system

Our farmers and producers will be more then vendors — they will be family. We strive to help bring economic prosperity to rural communities that are part of our regional food shed.

Environmental stewardship

We desire to lessen our impact on the planet. From our supply chain to waste disposal to energy consumption, we will make it easier for shoppers to live green.
