Spring is here and the growing season is just getting started. You can find locally grown produce every weekend at Silverton Food Co-op inside Live Local Marketplace (107 N Water St, Silverton). You’ll also find many other products from our neighboring family farms to fill your pantry, freezer and refrigerator. Come on down to get a glimpse of what your community-owned food co-op can offer as we continue to grow towards our permanent home and our own store. By becoming an owner of SFC today, you can get us closer to making that happen! Join us today!

JOIN US AT LIVE LOCAL MARKETPLACE
Silverton Food Co-op is now open in Live Local Marketplace, the amazing new store in downtown Silverton focused on local, hand-crafted, and artisan goods. Our Live Local location provides convenient and consistent access to locally produced food and other products. Stop in and shop from the local farmers and producers you are used to seeing at our pop-up co-ops. The co-op is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10AM to 6PM and now open Sundays from 10AM to 4PM.
“Cooperatives empower their members and strengthen communities. They promote food security and enhance opportunities for small agricultural producers. They are better tuned to local needs and better positioned to serve as engines of local growth.”
“Founded on the principles of private initiative, entrepreneurship and self-employment, underpinned by the values of democracy, equality and solidarity, the co-operative movement can help pave the way to a more just and inclusive economic order.”
“Cooperatives are the foundation of world peace. They are the love principle in action. Whether we like it or not, there is no other way but cooperatives”.
THE CO-OP MISSION
The Silverton Food Co-op’s mission is to be a community-owned grocery store that provides convenient access to a variety of locally raised or produced foods and other products and to foster a healthy and economically viable environment for our farmers and our community.
We are committed to acting cooperatively. We encourage each owner to contribute to and participate in all activities we undertake as a cooperative. We support other co-ops and cooperative efforts and educate our owners and our community about consumer issues and the cooperative movement.
The co-op will be owned by the community. Yes—YOU will be able to own the grocery store you shop at. And, not only can you own a share of the store, that share will give you an equal voice in the democratic process of the store.
