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 email@example.com or find us on Facebook.
We look forward to seeing you at the market!

An article in today's News & Observer, featuring DCM's very own Robin Arcus, reports that nationally, and locally, grocery co-ops are doing well in lean economic times. The report mentions Chatham Marketplace, and includes Robin's comments about DCM's upcoming investment campaign and our plans for the downtown Durham store. http://www.newsobserver.com/2011/01/19/929104/grocery-co-ops-report-rise...
