Become an Owner

Become an owner of Wild Onion Market! In doing so, you will be joining a wonderful community on a shared mission to open our own grocery store that is committed to healthy food access for all, a resilient local food system and positive environmental practices. Wild Onion Market cannot exist without owners like you.
Owners receive monthly member-only specials and can save at local restaurants and businesses with our Co-op Perks Program. During profitable years, the Board of Directors will determine patronage dividends to be paid out to owners. Becoming an owner grants you the right to vote for board members as well as to run for a seat on the board.
Becoming an owner costs $250 for a lifetime, household ownership share. There is no annual fee. We accept monthly payments as low as $10 over a 25 month period. Payments can be made with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal account. There are also sponsorship funds available.

What’s a Co-op?

WE AREN’T JUST COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY — WE’RE OWNED BY IT.

A cooperative (co-op) is a values-driven business, which makes it different from other grocery stores. We are community-owned, which allows us to send our profits directly back to our members, our store, and to the community we serve. Because of this, we can remain committed to a triple bottom line: the economic, social and environmental responsibilities that shape our co-op from the ground up.

Our Core Values

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

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

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.
a

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.
