The Co-op is Having a Giant Party!

It’s a big birthday year and we want YOU to help us CELEBRATE. Since 1972, Ashland Food Co-op has been deeply committed to building a community based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. Our co-op members believe in honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others. Add sustainability and environmental responsibility and you have a consumer-owned enterprise that is the magnetic center of the Ashland universe. Every day you can see all your friends at the Co-op. We’ve watched kids grow up and have their own families. We relish the reunion hugs in the aisles when families reunite for the holidays. Summer visitors discover our co-op plaza where music and singing is likely to appear on the spot. Food, music, family, and friends; it all comes together at the Co-op.

Join us for a fun-filled afternoon where we’ll feature live music from 33 String Drive and the young musicians from Creekside Strings. Enjoy Craft Beer and homemade cherry lemonade from our friends up the street at Standing Stone Brewing Company. Eat from the Co-op Deli or enjoy authentic Peruvian cuisine from Peruvian Point. We’ll also entertain the next generation of cooperators with face painting and other kids activities lead by Rogue Valley Farm to School.

But wait! There’s more! We’ll have a PRIZE WHEEL so you can spin for swag! Prizes include Co-op swag, Co-op gift cards, goodies from our vendors, and a chance to win a Vitamix! Plus,  FREE BIRTHDAY CAKE!

Mark your calendars!

About Ashland Food Coop

Ashland Food Co-op is a consumer cooperative that operates for the benefit of our owners. It’s simple to own your share of the Co-op. Just make a one-time, refundable equity investment of $100. You may pay in full or make an initial $10 payment! You’ll be reminded at the register when another quarterly $10 payment is due until your $100 equity purchase is paid. In return, the Co-op pledges to operate for the long-term health of our community. Unlike most businesses that make decisions primarily to maximize profits, cooperatives make decisions to maximize service to their owners and the community.
