History

The history of the Brattleboro Food Co-op began with a small buying club in 1975. Today, the Co-op is a 14,580 square foot natural foods market and deli on the ground floor of a four-story building which also includes Co-op offices, a commissary kitchen, a cooking classroom, and 24 apartments.

This beautiful downtown anchor building is a result of a collaboration with the Windham and Windsor Housing Trust and Housing Vermont, with many environmentally friendly features, including utilizing refrigeration waste heat to heat apartments and the store, solar panels on the roof, and much more.

The current store opened for business in June of 2012.

The Brattleboro Food Co-op is community-owned, with over 7,200 active shareholders, and our goal is to be as accessible and responsive to you as possible. We strive to provide you with quality foods at reasonable prices, in a relaxed and friendly environment. Our staff is knowledgeable and eager to help shoppers in any way they can. We are located in southeastern Vermont, just over the Massachusetts and New Hampshire borders. Our community offers beautiful Vermont countryside, a lively cultural scene, and easy access to skiing, hiking, and other outdoor activities.
