Our Big “Why?”
We are not looking to be just any “typical” grocery store. The catalyst for launching Prairie Food Co-op is to connect our community to as much local, fresh, organic, and sustainable food and goods as possible, in a grocery store format. Though we will need to fill in the gaps with more conventional products (we do live in the Midwest where certain products can’t be grown!), we will always be conscientious about what products we will stock.
We want to not only provide exceptional products to customers that shop in our store, we also want to uplift and empower those who have been historically overlooked by big chain grocery stores. Prairie Food Co-op is committed to making it a priority to include Indigenous-, BIPOC-, and women-owned farms and food businesses.
Vendor Application Form
As we near opening day, the co-op will hire a General Manager to oversee store operations. The General Manager will review all vendor applications and contact those who are a good fit for the needs of the co-op.
We encourage you to submit your New Vendor Application here or by filling out the form below. We appreciate your interest in Prairie Food Co-op!
