Start the New Year LOCAL!

Click image for more details.
The event celebrates the growth of the Macomb Food Co-op in 2017 including the addition of Grab & Go food, several new local producers, and a multitude of new products. Their 211 South McArthur Street location has become an important hub connecting local producers with the community. The Co-op is a place where both owners and the general public can find the best selection of chemical and antibiotic free, sustainably harvested and humanely grown food. During the event, food that is available from the Co-op and local producers will be served, and members of the Co-op will provide information about the organization and share their goals for 2018.

This event marks the closing of the exhibit, As Advertised: A History of Local Advertising. The Western Illinois Museum celebrates local history and the belief that knowing the past will inform the decisions we make for our future. The museum works passionately to collect area’s treasures and discover their significance. In 2017 over 2,800 visitors enjoyed the museum’s exhibits and programs.

paymentoptions_april2016The Macomb Food Co-op's Online Market is open for shopping each week from 5 pm Friday until 9 am Monday. Orders need to be placed during the weekend. Producers receive the orders and harvest the produce on Tuesday or Wednesday. Then you can pick up your fresh produce on Wednesdays between 4 and 7 pm. The Online Market helps cut back on food waste because Producers are harvesting what has already been ordered. A community member may shop as our guest for one month. After that, he or she will need to join the Co-op by purchasing a $100 owner share; an installment payment plan is available. Owner forms can be downloaded at the Become an Owner link on the menu bar above or can be picked up at our store location in Macomb. Payment options are cash, check, or credit card ($10 minimum). Products currently available include:
  • Fair-Trade Organic Loose Leaf Tea, and Whole Bean Coffee (And we have a grinder!)
  • Fair-Trade Organic Chocolate
  • Organic Nuts and Dried Fruits, Bulk Grains, and Spices
  • In-Stock Local Grass-fed Beef and Free-Range Whole Chickens
  • Sustainable, Single-line Caught, Wild Seafood from Alaska
  • Local Yogurt and Honey
  • Warm & Cozy Alpaca Socks
  • Personal Care Items for Bath, Laundry & Home
Anyone may shop at the store, but we have a wider variety available online. One of the benefits of becoming an owner is a 20% discount on fresh produce. Become an owner today! Co-op owners also have a vote and a voice in the future of the Co-op.
