    Prairie Food Co-op PROPS


    Find your Owner card because we wanna give our Owners PROPs! PROPs is an Owner perk that connects you with an incredible network of over 50 local businesses who offer special discounts to Prairie Food Co-op Owners. If you take advantage of all of the PROPs we've offered, you may have already earned back your Ownership cost!  You can see our full list of participating businesses in our Owner Business Directory.

    What else is special about our PROPS program? Studies have shown that when a dollar is spent at a locally-owned business, nearly 50% of it stays local and recirculates in the local economy (compared to 15% – 25% if you shop at large national chain stores). Your dollar is a powerful economic tool for your community!

    Members of our PROPS program have the opportunity to reach Co-op Owners through our website and eventually, in-store display space and personal vendor demos. If you are interested in participating in our PROPS program, you can submit an online application HERE.


    September 1 - 14, 2021 - Green Garden Mama


    We are excited to be partnering with Green Garden Mama, owned by Carrie Khoury (PFC Owner #995).  Located in Lombard, IL, Green Garden Mama offers local, sustainably grown flowers. Flowers in retail stores are often grown out of the country on large scale farms that use herbicides and pesticides. Not only do Green Garden Mama flowers travel the shortest distance from the flower bed to your table, but they are also grown organically in compost-enriched dirt.

    What better way to celebrate, show someone you care, or simply to add outdoor beauty into your everyday life than with a bouquet of fresh cut flowers! From September 1 through September 14, all Prairie Food Co-op Owners will receive a 20% discount on any order. Each bouquet is customizable and will include the flowers in bloom at the time of the order. To order, email Carrie and she will work with you to customize your order. Mention you are a PFC Owner when you order to receive the discount.
