Co-op Ownership

There are many options for health food in Spokane, but only one where you can become a co-owner of a mission driven retail business. Main Market is here to strengthen Spokane's food system, protect its environment, and care for and nurture the local economy. Your ownership ensures we always stay that way - locally driven.

What is a Co-op?

A food co-op is a grocery store owned by the shoppers (and by you, if you choose). Unlike corporate chains, a co-op is completely independent and owned by the people who shop there. Whether you are a member or not, everyone is welcome to shop! For information about food co-ops watch the short video below.

How to Become an Owner

Becoming an owner is easy! During your visit, let the cashier know you would like to join, and in only a minute or two you'll become an owner of a locally-driven co-op whose mission is to strengthen our local community and make sure everyone has access to healthy, delicious food.

The full cost of a share is $180, which can be purchased in annual payments as low as $10/year (but some owners choose to pay in full at sign-up, it's your choice!) If you choose to pay in annual payments, that $10 will be added to your transaction and you'll get your brand-new Owner card!

Why become an Owner?

What could be better than owning a store with like-minded Spokanites? Community is the strength of Main Market, it really does take a village!

Co-ops support the community

We are passionate about giving back to our community because we believe that good food is just the beginning of what we can achieve by working together. When you join and shop our co-op, you’re helping create a vibrant local economy by keeping your shopping dollars in our community. Plus, you’re supporting local producers while enjoying fresh, delicious foods and sustainable products that are good for everyone!

What are the Benefits of Ownership?

Main Market serves a diverse community of owners in many different ways. For some it's the opportunity to be more than just a customer, for others it's the owner-only perks, but for all of us, it's the love of good food. See all of the  perks below.
