Prairie Food Co-op is not open yet. We expect to open late 2023. Our mission is to connect consumers to local, fresh, organic, and sustainable goods in a full-service grocery store format. Prairie Food Co-op will be the first food co-op in DuPage County. The only other food co-ops open in the Chicago region are The Dill Pickle Food Co-op in Chicago and Sugar Beet Food Co-op in Oak Park.
Prairie Food Co-op is committed to prioritizing Native American-, BIPOC-, and women-owned farms and food businesses, as these groups have been marginalized and discriminated against (see this video for more information).
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 potential good fit for the co-op.
