The Clayton Food Co-op is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. You do not have to be a member to shop at our store. We are open ALL YEAR ROUND.
It is the Clayton Food Cooperative’s mission to provide a sustainable, membership-owned, community market of wholesome foods with an emphasis on healthy, locally produced products.
Noon-5 Monday through Wednesday
November 2013: The Clayton Food Co-op has a new home located in Marble Place at 720 James St.
If you would like to become a member of the Clayton Food Co-op read on. Benefits of membership? Well for one thing, we own it!
A cooperative is a business owned and managed by its members. As locally owned businesses, co-ops are committed to the people they serve and the communities in which they live.
Member-owners have the benefit of special ordering food items from our suppliers' vast catalogs at a 10-15% discount through our Wholeshare and UNFI Buying Clubs. Many items are local, many are certified organic. Now that soup season is here, member-owners should also take advantage of our Bread Buying Club. What goes better with soup than a rustic loaf of wood-fired oven baked bread? And just because the winter season is fast approaching doesn't mean our member-owners won't have access to great produce — fresh, organic vegetables and fruits are available to order through Grindstone Farm.
Member-owners also have the option to volunteer work hours for additional discounts. Work 4 hours per month, get 7% purchase discounts, work 12 hours per month, get 15% purchase discounts off items in our store. We also offer work-for-membership and payment plan options.
A portion of the co-op profits may be returned to member-owners as a patronage refund after a three year period. Please refer to the bylaws for details.
As a member-owner you belong to an organization that strives to sustain the environment, the economy and our community. The Clayton Food Co-op actively supports local agriculture, food producers and general products.
Member-owners have a voice in what we sell, as well as in the overall organization of our co-op. Member-owners get the most buying power for their money and the money stays in our community, contributing to its strength.
