Become a Mustard Seed Member

Invest in your community.

Welcome to The Mustard Seed Co+op, where members like you are the heart of our operation, and more importantly, are the fuel of our community. 


When you become a member of The Mustard Seed Co+op, you become an active part of our organization, helping us grow us from a store that "makes it easy to eat local" into an entire support network: sustainably supporting our local staff, local farmers, local businesses, and the local economy. Plus, every dollar spent at our Co+op, all profits made are reinvested into our operations and our local economy. Our shareholders are our members, and any dividends are returned to us. 

In addition to supporting our mission, you get:


  • 2% owner savings on all items*

  • Owner only sales*

  • Access to owner special ordering privileges and discounts*

  • Voting rights in Board of Director elections (one vote per owner-household)

  • Opportunity to be involved in the leadership and structure of your store

  • Ability to utilize our online ordering system for pick up

* = benefits of ‘active’ members only

A $100 share is your household’s initial investment in the Co+op, and membership is a one-time commitment. In subsequent years, “active” membership renewal for a household is $50 annually in order to maintain active membership status to maintain the benefits of membership
