The Common Market (RT 85)


The Common Market is a cooperative grocery store that has been serving natural foods to the Frederick community since 1974. Our co-op has grown tremendously over the years and opened the doors to a full-service store in May of 2006. Our spacious store is a great one-stop-shop for all of the items on your natural foods grocery list. Or drop in for delicious food from our cafe and enjoy it in our sunny indoor dining area or the outside patio.

Our staff strives to create a unique, educational and interactive shopping experience for all. We carry out that commitment by offering customers a variety of workshops in our Co-op Community Room. We hold events that range from chocolate tasting to workshops on whole foods. Our activities reach beyond the walls of the store; we also reach out to our community with a variety of events including an Earth Day Event in our local community park.

At The Common Market we believe in maintaining a fresh, high quality range of fairly-priced products that promote customer health and wellness, environmental and social sustainability, and localized economy. Our buyers use these criteria when seeking out products for our diverse customer base. We offer many standard brand name natural foods, but enhance that selection with a wide variety of local goods in all departments, and a variety of foods for special diet needs. We welcome opportunities to meet people in our area, so please contact us or stop in for a visit.
