What is the Assabet Village Co-op Market?
We’re opening a full-service, community-owned grocery store in Metro West Boston (target location: Maynard!), sourcing food from local farms and returning profits to the community through local suppliers, living-wage jobs, and annual Owner dividends.
As an Owner, you and more than 1,000 residents across the region have a say in our products, programs, classes, and governance. And while you don’t need to be an Owner to shop here, a one-time, affordable share and great Owner benefits make it an easy choice.
Grow, Fund, Build
Did you know that 70% of food co-ops are still thriving after 5 years in business? Just 1 in 3 small businesses can say the same. So what’s the co-op secret? GROW, FUND, BUILD.
We GROW our Ownership base – more than 1,000 eager, invested Owner shoppers – before we ever open our doors. We FUND with a capital campaign that supplements bank funds and ensures that we thrive on Day 1 and Day 1,000. And we BUILD a store located and sized to give us the best chance of success.
