- ABOUT US -
The Village Co-op Market of Williamsville started as an idea in April, 2017. A lot has been accomplished since then. We've incorporated, established a Board, completed our feasibility study, formed committees, held two rounds of election and so much more! The founders envision a cooperatively owned food store that supports local growers & producers and supports a sustainable, thriving local economy.
WHAT IS A FOOD CO-OP?
A food co-op is a collectively-owned grocery store. In order to become a member-owner, an individual pays a small amount to purchase a share. Anyone can shop in the store, but only member-owners receive discounted prices or dividends. A food co-op focuses on healthy food choices and local sources of food.
