We are eager to move forward to realize our Vision of a better food community - local, sustainable, connected in the historic Gerber building at the corner of Wilson and Broadway. Our Owners and supporters want a community store that features local food, local ownership and local control of our food system. And we also want to act sustainably, reducing plastics and packaging and carefully managing food waste.

Owners Fund the Store

The last piece of the puzzle is Cooperative Principle #3 — Member Economic Participation. Opening our store requires Owners and members of the community who want this Co-op to participate financially — we can't do this without you investing; without you becoming an Owner; without you donating. We need to raise a lot of the funding together.

Connect with us over these shared values and let's build this together. You can help by becoming an Owner, investing, or donating.

We are stronger together and your Co-op needs you now more than ever!

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.
