The Catonsville CO-OP is Open for Business

Mar 31, 2019 04:14PM
The Catonsville Cooperative Market (CO-OP) is pleased to announce that they recently re-opened this community-owned grocery store in a newly renovated space at 1905 Edmondson Avenue, with expanded inventory and store hours to better meet the local food shopping needs of its growing membership. The market is now open four times a month: every other Tuesday from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. and every other Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. They recently hosted a Grand Re-Opening event on March 23.

Since 2011, the CO-OP’s vision has been to open a full-time grocery store. After seven years of steady member growth, CO-OP members voted in 2018 to renovate the current CO-OP market space at Immanuel United Church of Christ (IUCC) in Catonsville in order to increase inventory and improve market flow.

To create equity and investment in the CO-OP, each owner purchases a member share, giving them access to shop at the market or from select vendors online. Members also have input regarding the products sold, the services offered and how the CO-OP engages the community. Currently the CO-OP has approximately 300 members and partners with more than 20 vendors. In addition to the market, each year the CO-OP holds the Hometown Brewdown beer festival, a chili cookoff and skill-share workshops in and around the community.
