Join the Co-op!

BriarPatch is more than a grocery store. We’re collectively owned by people like YOU, your friends and neighbors! Since our humble roots began in 1976 as a buying club, we’ve provided the highest quality food and products for healthy lifestyles. Ownership is good at both of our Grass Valley and Auburn locations!

Sure there are the perks, like Owner and Volunteer Discounts, Voting Rights and Patronage Dividends. You’ll also find purpose here, by belonging to a cooperative business committed to doing good things.

New Owner Goodies.

When you sign up you’ll receive email coupons and discover some of our favorite items – for free! ($35 value)

Owner Appreciation 10%-off Months.

Each year the Co-op announces months where owners can take 10% off one shopping trip (taken off total at register, no coupon necessary). Owners must redeem their discount within each month offered. Owner discount months will be announced to owners via email, social media and in-store signage.

Discount for Volunteering.

Savings on Events.

Sign up for Text Alerts.

We’ll let you know if there’s a store closure or if we’ve got a fun special going on (don’t worry, we like to keep them special by keeping these few and far between).

Vine Magazine Subscription

You’ll automatically be opted in to receive a digital subscription to our quarterly magazine, The Vine, featuring seasonal recipes, informative articles about food, farms and issues that are meaningful to you. 

Other Discounts

Take $20 off your first ad in The Vine, and rent the Community Room for $10/hour (that’s $5/hr off).

Save 5% on all BriarPatch-branded supplements and vitamins.

BriarPatch does not stack discounts, meaning only one discount can be used per shopping trip. You may use store credits and/or gift cards with discounts.
