On November 2nd, 2015, after over 7 years as a private food buying club, Know Thy Food successfully transitioned to a Community Owned Cooperative Grocery, owned by our Member-Owners. Membership is voluntary and open to all!

The new co-op is one entity that owns Warehouse Café, the retail market and the online catalog under the umbrella of Know Thy Food Cooperative.

Joining the co-op as a Member-Owner requires a one-time investment (also called equity or share), which can be paid in 5 installments.

Regular Equity: $150 + $25 admin fee per household*

Low Income Equity: $75 + $25 admin fee per household**

Note: The investment is at risk, but is meant to be refundable with Board approval in the future, while the admin fee is non-refundable.

You may join in person at the co-op or online. Regardless of where you join, all Member-Owners register in order to access our member catalog and shop online.

Please also read the Ordering FAQ page to understand how our online pre-order system works in greater detail.

We hope you join us in our local and sustainable foods adventure!
