Own the Store for $10

You don’t have to be a member to shop at our store… but if you want lifetime access to special deals, amazing workshops, and “a say” in the products we carry and how we run things, we think $10 is worth it.

Better Food. Stronger Community.

Unlike many big name grocers, we’re owned by the people who shop in our store. That’s right, we are a not-for-profit grocery store that is owned and run by members.

If you have shopped at Mountain Equipment Co-op, then you’ve experienced a co-op, except with canoes and snowshoes rather than fresh and delicious food.

At our co-op, we’re focusing on securing top quality food produced by farmers, bakers, cheesemakers and other growers and specialists across Ontario for our local community. In addition, we will stock a wide variety of products normally found in other grocery stores.

The store will also sell fresh and convenient “take away” meals and, to top it all off, we will also have a cafe!

You learn more about food co-ops by watching this video from our friends at Co+op: Stronger Together.


We’re busy securing amazing locally grown food and fantastic products for our members, kitting out the store interior and spreading the word in our community. We are gearing up for a Fall 2019 opening.


Would you like to contribute to your community, gain work experience, or top up your student volunteer hours? We have many great volunteer positions available from now to beyond opening. Learn More.
