Build a Better Market

Chicago Market will transform our local food system with the opening of our community-owned grocery store. We’ve come a long way:

• Our historic Gerber building site is secured.
• We have a solid business plan with strong projections.
• An experienced General Manager is already on board to launch our Co-op.

Now it's up to us, the Owners, friends, and supporters of the Co-op, to provide our portion of the funding as we Build a Better Market. This year we ask you to put Chicago Market in your year-end donation plans. Donations at any size make an impact — they ripple through our community once we open, providing jobs, community support, healthy local food and more. Recurring and tax-deductible options are available too.

We've raised over $900,000 and given our campaign volunteers a break for the holidays, but our Preferred Share investment opportunities are still available. Email us to start an investment.

Vision for change.

Chicago Market wants to change the way you shop for groceries. More than that, though, we want to change your relationship with food.

Food values.

You deserve a new kind of grocery-shopping experience — one packed with local, organic foods and imbued with a sense of community. One in which you know who produces the food that feeds your family.

Community values.

Chicago Market will be a community hub — a vibrant center of exceptional food, workshops, meetings, performances and more. And you, as a co-op stakeholder, will have a voice in all aspects of this community.
