Attention Member-Owners

The future of the Plainfield Co-op is in your hands!

The Plainfield Co-op has been a centerpiece of our community for 50 years. Recently, our Co-op has been struggling due to a lack of resources. 

It is time for everyone who cares about the Co-op to step up! The Co-op is seeking your help to build a viable path forward.

Learn more about our current situation by reading:

Host a Kitchen Table Conversation to talk with your friends and neighbors about what the co-op means to you. The Co-op cannot continue under the current conditions. What can we do to develop a sustainable future?

Plainfield Co-op is a small, community-owned and operated food cooperative offering a full line of groceries. We love our members, but everyone is welcome to shop with us! Whether you're looking for fresh produce, dairy, affordable bulk products, or household items, you'll find what you need on our shelves. We also have an extensive selection of medicinal and kitchen herbs; a carefully selected collection of affordable beers, wines and hard ciders; health supplements; and personal care products. Everything on our shelves is always as local as possible. Our mission to provide the community with the most healthful food choices means that our focus is on organic, but we also offer selected conventional products that are more affordable.

While we welcome all shoppers, our members are closest to our hearts! So we do everything we can to make sure membership is affordable for everyone. Please check out our membership page to find out how you can become more involved in working with us to provide food for people instead of profit!
