    Order a Yard Sign

    Show your Owner pride with a yard sign and pique the curiosity of your neighbors.

    You can be one short conversation away from recruiting another Owner!

    We would like to see a sign in every yard, so we are gladly giving yard signs to every willing Owner. Each sign costs us about $10 to produce, so please consider making a donation on the next screen to help alleviate the cost to the co-op. However, if you can't pitch in right now, that's OK too. The important thing is helping us spread the Prairie Food word. 

    Enter your address below and we will get a sign to your yard usually within a week!

    Sign Now! Bring PFC to Downtown Lombard

    We are thrilled to announce that we are pursuing the development opportunity at 101 - 109 S. Main St. in Lombard. We will soon submit our proposal to the Village of Lombard to secure this location in partnership with a local development firm. Our proposal is in response to the Village's request for proposal (RFP) for the site.

     

    We love this location for its unique history, accessibility, proximity to the downtown corridor, and its ability to deliver on our mission to create a local, sustainable and connected food community. After completing two separate professional market studies and reviewing alternate sites, we also know this location is the best performing option for Prairie Food Co-op.

     

    Please sign your name to our petition of community support. We need our Owners and entire community rallying to make this future home a possibility. Share this link with your family and friends, neighborhood groups, trustees, and favorite local businesses.

     

    Prairie Food Co-op started as a community conversation to bring a cooperatively owned grocery store to DuPage County and has grown into a thriving organization of 750+ owners working together to open a brick-and-mortar marketplace for locally grown food and products. PFC will not only bring quality food to our tables but will provide fair paying jobs, focus on sustainable practices, and drive business within the local economy.  Thank you for your continued support as we begin this exciting chapter in our story!

     

    For more information, we invite you to join our public community gatherings and watch our website and Facebook pages for additional details. To connect with us, email info@prairiefood.coop.

    Don’t know if my message sent a few minutes ago. I attended the potluck last night and asked the question of restaurant business owners

    Actually all small business owners being

    Asked to join. Would someone be willing to help me write a cover letter and I would drop that off with a brochure if you think appropriate.

    Also could I pick up a sign and a few more brochures

    We want to hear from you!

    We are driven by the community, for the community.  Let us know your questions and thoughts and we will be in touch.
