Our Mission

We have been working hard since 2008 to build a community-owned grocery store in Kitsap County. Our aim is to connect our local community with quality food, products and access to information that promotes a healthy future for our families and our planet.

We Need You

Our timeline to open a store depends on you - as owners of the store you provide the equity we need to open. The more member-owners we get, the sooner we can open our doors. Let's see that member-owner count above grow!
