Who can shop at the store? Everyone can shop at the Tacoma Food Co-op. You don’t have to be a member to shop at the store. Come shop, come be nourished, come enjoy the experience and the community. It is your co-op Tacoma…just for you!
Me? JOIN? Everyone can join the Tacoma Food Co-op. When you join, you take an active hand in supporting the food culture and nourishment of our community. The Tacoma Food Co-op exists because members just like you joined and then collectively invested enough money (and time) to open the store. It was a labor of love…for the benefit of the community. Yes, join…today!

What is a co-op? In the loosest sense, a co-op is any voluntary organization composed of a group of individuals (or organizations) formed for their mutual (generally, financial) benefit. These associations share a number of features (visit our co-op page for more info):
- They are democratic, volunteer associations.
- They are formed for mutual financial benefit (to save money or to increase buying power); in short, they are businesses.
- They have no owners other than their member-owners.
- They are non-profit organizations in the sense that what would be profit in other organizations is returned to the member-owners.
