Who We Are
We are everyone’s cooperative grocery store, collectively owned by the folks who shop here – like YOU, your friends & neighbors!
Vehicle for Change
Since 1976 we’ve been building a sustainable & equitable food system that supports healthy people, animals and the environment. When you spend your dollars at The Patch, you contribute to a thriving local economy and a kinder, more resilient world.
Rock Your Mocktails!
Give your bod a break after a season of indulgence with a Dry January. We’ve got a whole new selection of non-alcoholic wines and beers, and plenty of goodies for making the perfect mocktails. The only limit is your imagination (and no booze, of course!).
Organic & Delicious.
We support Fair Trade and Certified Organic producers and work closely with local farmers to plan crop production and to help ensure their financial stability. We’re building a delicious food movement, one bite at a time!
Join for the Perks,
Stay for the Purpose.
Owner and Volunteer Discounts, Voting Rights, e-Receipts and Patronage Dividends – what’s not to like? Plus, our owners get that warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from belonging to a business that does good things.
