Medford Food Co-op
Medford Food Co-op was incorporated in 2006. Thanks to the perseverance of leaders within the local cooperative community, the second effort to open a store was a success. By August of 2010, the goal of raising half a million dollars was surpassed through co-op member-generated loans. In August 2011, Medford’s only community-owned grocery store dedicated to organic and natural products opened its doors.
We feature organic produce from local farmers whenever possible and a variety of local and regional products from bulk goods to beer and wine. We offer affordable organic and natural products in our Co+op Basics program, as well as weekly Fresh Deals specials and bimonthly Co+op Deals for even greater savings. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff are here daily from 8am to 8pm and are happy to assist with your food and health-related questions.
We collaborate with others in our local food system through participation in the Rogue Valley Food System Network and THRIVE (The Rogue Initiative for a Vital Economy). In addition to our support for local and regional food producers, we also give back to our community through monetary and in-kind donations to non-profit organizations and events promoting local, organic food, food related issues, or community health concerns.
