Who We Are?

The Co-op began in 1967 as a food buying club when the “Founding Mothers” and other individuals banded together to establish a source for unadulterated, unrefined, locally grown food. We incorporated in 1975 establishing deep roots in our community. This allows us the ability able to provide local, healthy food to our members.

As explained in the Co-op’s mandate, we are committed to practicing sustainable business ethics and supporting any of our neighbors in need. In addition to this, we attempt to partner with other local businesses at every possible opportunity in attempts to building a stronger, more viable community in the heart of Newark, DE. 

At the Co-op, we continue to attract new members concerned about their  health and environmental impact, enabling us to better serve it's community! As explained in the Co-op’s mandate, we are committed to practicing sustainable business ethics and supporting any of our neighbors in need.
