The Common Market is a values based business with a triple bottom line. This means we take into account social and environmental values in addition to the traditional economic measures of our success. We aim to give back to people without depleting the planet.
With your equity share and patronage, your Co-op is able to provide great products and services, as well as social and economic benefits to the community.
With classes in our Community Room, you can learn
something new about health, wellness, or sustainability from a local expert.

Community Outreach Program
We started a new program in January 2014 that encourages our staff to participate in community events by awarding employees incentives for participating in our volunteer activities.To date, we have over 20% of employees participating and contributing 228 volunteer hours of community service.
We strive to buy from local farmers and producers. Local food is thousands of miles fresher, it builds community, and supports the conservation of farmland in our region (see a list of some of our local vendors.)
