Become an Owner

The most important thing that anyone can do to support a co-op is join by becoming an Owner. By joining now, you are taking the first step in bringing our community-owned market to life.

Wild Onion Market is focused on 3 Core Values:

  • Providing Healthy Food Access for All
  • Building a Resilient Local Food System
  • Cultivating Environmental Stewardship in our store and supply chain

Becoming an owner in the Wild Onion Market Co-op costs $250 for a lifetime, household ownership share. There is no annual fee. Payments in full for $250 can be made with a credit or debit card. To make installment payments, a PayPal account is needed. We accept monthly payments as low as $10 over a 25 month period.

If you'd like to pay by check, please provide your name, phone number, email address, and mailing address.
