The Co-Op

Lovettsville Cooperative Market

Welcome to the Lovettsville Co-op

The Lovettsville co-op will be a full-service grocery store. The co-op is community owned, so profits go back into our community and members have a voice in co-op decisions.

The store will be a place where anyone can shop for healthy food. Plans include a hot bar and deli.

When you shop at the co-op you will know where your food comes from. We are already working with local farmers and producers.

The co-op will also serve as a community hub, sponsoring programs and events focused on local needs and interests.
