The Food Co-Op includes a group of members and volunteers dedicated to bringing a community-owned, locally-stocked venue for local foods and products to downtown Indiana, PA. In operating a food co-op, our goals are to:

  • Enhance access to local, sustainable, and bulk food and other goods for Indiana area visitors and residents
  • Address downtown Indiana’s “food desert” by creating an outlet for local food
  • Invest in our local economy by supporting local and regional food producers/growers
  • Create a mixed-use space for food education, meetings, and community empowerment
  • Bring more visitors to downtown Indiana by offering goods not easily accessible elsewhere

Our motto is to develop an economically viable yet socially conscious food co-op emphasizing 3Ps: people, planet, and purpose.

Consider shopping at the market, getting involved, becoming a member, or attending one of our upcoming events.
