The Co-op Difference

A co-op is a special kind of business. Co-ops are owned and governed by the people who shop at the store. When you belong to Valley Natural Foods Co-op, you’re a part of a community—one that promotes local farmers and small producers right here in Minnesota.

People choose to belong to a co-op for different reasons. Maybe it’s for the discounts and owner specials. Or perhaps it’s because it’s a community-owned business. Whatever the reason, your ownership is an investment that supports not only Valley Natural Foods, but also the local economy, ethical purchasing and living-wage jobs.

Ownership at Valley Natural Foods is a simple, one-time investment of $100*. It’s a lifetime ownership, not an annual fee. Visit our Customer Service desk in the store to start enjoying the benefits of ownership today!

*Payment plans available, as well.
