Self-christened “The Little Co-op That Could,” the Eastside Food Co-op opened its store in Northeast Minneapolis on December 4, 2003, against considerable odds. Many doubted our ability to establish a natural foods co-op in our community because of its demographic make-up, its relatively modest income levels, and the shopping patterns of its residents. We prevailed thanks to the perseverance of a core group of volunteers, enthusiastic community support, and financial investment from many sources.

The Viroqua Food Co-op began as a natural foods buying club organized by a small group of individuals who worked together to provide their families with healthy foods. In the fall of 1995 we opened our first store in a rented space at 303 N. Center St. in Viroqua.

Despite the limited space and out-of the-way location, our little Co-op began to grow and thrive. In 1999 we renovated our modest space and expanded the retail space to 920 square feet to meet the needs of our growing membership.

The Principle Six (P6) Cooperative Trade Movement exemplifies just and equitable trade relationships between farmers, producers, retailers and consumers rooted in cooperative principles and values. P6 is owned by and designed for co-ops. P6 is the symbol of a growing consumer-supported food economy recognizing product grown or produced locally, or internationally, by small farmers/producers, and cooperatives.
