BECOME AN OWNER

Everyone is welcome to shop at Menomonie Market, but there are awesome benefits to ownership.

WHAT OWNERSHIP IS

Becoming an owner means you own a share of our business and get to reap the benefits.

Co-ops are customer-owned businesses. Unlike a corporation, our purpose isn’t to accumulate profits, but rather to meet the goals of our customers and keep our wealth here in the Chippewa Valley. Your investment provides the capital to run the business, helps you save more on groceries, and gives you a say in our future. At the end of the fiscal year, any surplus generated is then reinvested in the business or returned to the owners.

When you become a Menomonie Market owner, you help support:

• Your local community’s economy
• Fair wages and good working conditions for farmers, bakers, and field workers
• Local producers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, and more
• Sustainable producers and practices
• Food and garden education for kids and the community
• Healthier ways of growing food with less impact to the environment
• Better quality foods and ingredients
