In fall of 2006, a group of Tacoma residents recognized the need for an affordable urban grocery that would provide local, organic, and natural foods. The steering committee that formed from this meeting decided a cooperative business model would best meet that need.
In 2009, member-owners of the Tacoma Food Co-op elected its first Board of Directors. The Board welcomes participation and leadership on all levels.
On August 26, 2011, after a huge membership drive and lots of support from the community, the Tacoma Food Co-op opened its doors at the corner of 6th and Junett.
Our greatest hope is to have our store foster the health and wellness of all the people of Tacoma and create lots of community spirit! Become a member-owner today.
