Our 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.

Our Owners

Being an owner of the Silverton Food Co-op gives you the opportunity to join your friends and neighbors in building a community-owned and democratically controlled economic institution that serves the owners and the greater community.

Co-op owners are helping to build a business that brings integrity to the marketplace; a company that is responsive to and operates with the consumers’ interests at heart, while providing the community with good jobs and good, healthy, local food.

Silverton Food Co-op will be a community-owned grocery store—that means if you join, you own it!
