Online Registration

Anyone can shop at the co-op, but we need members in order to build a store front. Our members are our owners and without their investment the ERA Food Co-op cannot open.

Owners provide community support for the co-op. Their investment and involvement makes the co-op possible. By becoming a member you get a say in who is elected to our Board of Directors and other business decisions as they arise. Owners will receive patronage refunds when the store becomes profitable along with owner-only discounts and coupons.

By becoming a member you can feel good knowing your commitment to the co-op vision is going to help support local farmers, local economies, and provide trust-worthy, healthy, sustainably raised food.

To become an Owner, fill out the ownership form below.

A member-owner is more than a consumer, you become an investor and vital asset in the co-op development. Your one time membership fee unlocks priceless benefits!

As with any investment, your ownership share is subject to risk.  If the co-op is unsuccessful, the board of directors will determine distribution of remaining assets.  Every effort will be made to refund the paid portion of your member-owner equity share.



Membership is a one-time $100 investment that gives you lifetime membership in the co-op.  There is no annual fee after this initial investment.

  1. Thank you Alison! We are happy to have you. Keep spreading the word and let all your friends know about the amazing benefits of being a member. Welcome to our co-op family.
