Urban Greens Food Co-op is a consumer-owned cooperative working to open a full-scale retail grocery store in Providence, RI. The store will provide and promote healthy, affordable, sustainably-sourced, and local food options.
Urban Greens Food Co-op won’t be just another grocery store! It will be a community directed market that will bring fresh, healthy and locally produced foods of the highest quality to our city and state.
Similar to an indoor farmers’ market, our Co-op will make local produce, dairy, poultry, seafood and meat accessible year-round. This will support the sustainability of our farmers and local economy, as well as the health of our community.
Urban Greens Food Co-op is committed to being a resource and empowering people to eat well and live well.
Become a member today! Member owners all own equity shares of the future store. The equity funds pooled from member’s fees are the seed money for the retail grocery store.
I think any of us who have lived somewhere that has a co-op really miss not having one in Providence. The extra great thing about Urban Greens is the idea of transforming a food desert in Providence into a thriving community center of locally sourced food and products that contribute to the health of the neighborhood and our city.
