Support the co-op by becoming a working or non-working member. We offer different types of memberships that will entitle you to a discount when you shop with us. Lower joining fees are available for low-income working members; please let Membership know when joining.
2023: we’re offering new member orientations!
We’ll reach out to those whose availability matches open weekly coop shifts (check your SPAM filter, as our messages often get flagged by mistake). Please fill out our New Member Availability Survey here.

Other Discounts (no membership required)
- 8% – senior (65 and up)
- 5% – paying with EBT, disabled or tenant of Cooper Square Mutual Housing Association

Discounts do not combine. Each person takes only the largest of whichever discount applies. For example, a student who also uses EBT gets 5%, not 8%.
