Become an Owner
The most important thing that anyone can do to support a co-op is join by becoming an owner.
Why become an owner?
The mission of the Wild Onion Market Co-op is to strengthen our diverse community through inclusive economic growth, ethical food production, and programs centered on food and social justice.
The Co-op recently reached our goal of 450 owners and we are now in the process of site selection for our grocery store. Becoming an owner in the Wild Onion Market Co-op costs $250 for a lifetime, household ownership share. There is no annual fee. We accept monthly payments as low as $25 over a 10 month period. Payments can be made with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal account.
We have also recently added the option to pay in $10 monthly installments but ask that you only make this choice when you would otherwise be unable to join.
If you'd like to pay by check, please fill out the form at Wild Onion Market Co-op:

An ownership share is $250. You may elect to purchase up to $500 in shares. Please note that additional shares do not grant any additional votes or privileges. For more information, please see our bylaws. We also accept monthly payments of $10, $25, or $50. The Wild Onion Market Co-op does not charge any processing fees, nor is there a fee for installment payments.
If you have any questions about payments or invoicing, please email [email protected]
It is your responsibility to provide Wild Onion Market Co-op with a current mailing address should the above information change.
As with any investment, your ownership share is subject to risk. If the co-op is unsuccessful, the Board of Directors will determine distribution of remaining assets. Every effort will be made to refund the paid portion of your owner equity share.
