Community Investment Campaign

Your Store, Your Investment

A unique way to earn a return on investment and support your community.

Help Make Urban Greens Shovel Ready

We're ready to go: Urban Greens has found a Providence home at 93 Cranston Street. Construction has started, we've hired a General Manager, and the Co-op Market is scheduled to open next summer! Now let's join together and make it happen!

We need your leadership and resources where they matter--feeding your families with healthy food, supporting your local farmers and producers, and working toward a robust and sustainable Rhode Island food economy.

Urban Greens is ready to be an anchor community business:

  • A leader in local sourcing
  • Dedicated to being inclusive: from leadership and hiring, to local food sourcing, to our Food For All program
  • Offering farmers market quality, 7 days a week

An opportunity to invest where you live and see your investment grow.

  • Minimum 2% annual interest rate
  • May redeem after 7 years at full value
  • May redeem after 12 years at 120% of full value
  • Interest accrues during any unpaid year


With over $400,000 already raised...

...the Rhode Island Foundation will invest an additional $300,000 if we reach our $600,000 goal!


How much needs to be raised?
$600,000 in investments from the community.

Why community capital?
Community investments allow the Co-op to take on less debt and become the thriving and unique store we all envision.

When does the Co-op need the community capital?
Right now! Community investment is critical to getting our doors open!


This is not a donation. This is an interest-bearing investment that will help open Urban Greens. You'll be able to walk into your investment, browse your investment's shelves, and buy local food from farmers that your investment supports. Questions? Email us at or call us at 401-267-8432.
