We envision a healthy community, with access to quality food in a vibrant and welcoming market, where anyone can be an owner and everyone can shop.
To provide a customer-owned food cooperative offering natural, local, and organic products at reasonable prices while supporting the local economy, providing food education, and advocating for environmentally sustainable practices.
SunCoast Co-op Market is a grassroots effort to open a community-owned, cooperative grocery store in Imperial Beach, California. SunCoast is part of a resurgence in consumer food cooperatives across America that are strengthening local food systems, increasing access to healthy food for all residents, and providing needed retail outlets for small local farms and producers.
A consumer food co-op is a business that is owned and controlled by community members, not outside investors. Cooperatives serve their owners and the community. When sufficient funding is raised through owner shares, grants, and loans, a full-service grocery store will be opened. You can support this amazing effort by becoming an owner today!
