Welcome to the Third Coast Market Co-Op, Coming to SouthWest Michigan!
Our goal? August 2014! Can we do it?
We think so - but it's up to all of us - so please become a member today!
Third Coast Market Co-Op (TCMC) is a consumer-owned cooperative grocery store, bringing a selection of local & healthful foods and products at affordable prices to SW Michigan.
The Co-Op will carry a full line of healthy food and personal care items with a local-emphasis, supplementing with trusted national brands. The biggest draws of market co-ops tend to be strong local & organic produce and diverse bulk food sections, which offers significant cost savings to members and non-members alike. You won’t have to second guess and read labels with what will be offered. We want our members & shoppers to trust when they walk out the door with their purchase they are buying the highest quality food available. The co-op will offer healthy and affordable eating seminars, cooking classes, community events and films. Volunteer opportunities will be a-plenty within the co-op and through community outreach programs in our region. We will be adding much more information to the website, so please check back often and make sure you sign up for the Third Coast Market News to stay up-to-date on our progress.
