Welcome! Durham Co-op Market is a new cooperative grocery store opening on West Chapel Hill Street near downtown (Read more about our location).  Durham Co-op Market is community owned, similar to other local co-ops including Weaver Street Market in Carrboro and Deep Roots Market in Greensboro.  If you're not an owner, now is a great time to become one! The store will be opening in early 2015. 

The co-op will be open to all shoppers, and offer natural, organic, and local food and other products. It will reinvest profits back into the community, practice sustainability, and foster a positive, respectful workplace. We are built by Durham and dedicated to serving Durham. Contact us at info@durham.coop or find us on Facebook. 

We look forward to seeing you at the market!
