EarthDayEarth Day Birthday!

Little seedlings are sprouting up through the rich soil in West Central Illinois, and soon they will be all ready for your table! Come see us how much we have grown in this last year at our Earth Day Outdoor Market & First Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, April 22!

We'll have an outdoor petting zoo for the family, and producers will be selling directly to you outside. This is our way of letting you, our customers; you, our shareholder/owners; and you, our producers, know just how grateful we are for your support these last 12 months!

Hopefully, Mother Nature will cooperate like she did last year, so if you're headed to Chandler Park for EarthFest or the Bike Parade, come visit us a few blocks over! See how much we've grown since the seeds of Co-op were first sewn.

We will have one more outdoor market before the Macomb Farmer's Market opens on May 18, so keep your eye on this space or Like us Facebook to keep up with Co-op happenings.

Week After Week: Keep the Love Coming!

We are kicking off our Spend $10 and Bring a Friend campaign, hoping to inspire you to shop local every week AND make sure that all your friends and family are aware of how much we have to offer. People are always saying they didn't know that they didn't have to be a member to shop at the store. Let's get the word out!

Try something new every week and expand your culinary perspective! Share your recipes with us so we can try new things, too! We love to spotlight your kitchen adventures on Facebook. We are always adding new products to our store shelves, and most of those products have been suggested by you. If we don't carry something you want, let us know and we'll look into it.

Your consistent commitment to Spend $10 and Bring a Friend will help us continue to grow.
The Macomb Food Co-op is dedicated to selling local and regional fresh food and locally-produced items. We have two ways in which we are achieving this goal:  a weekly Online Market that connects local producers to consumers, and the Store at 211 S. McArthur (at the corner of Washington and McArthur).
