WHY JOIN?

The Plainfield Co-op is open to the public, but we rely strongly on membership dues to survive and thrive. If you are committed to buying locally and consciously, we encourage you to invest in membership.  You'll not only enjoy a discount at the register, but you'll be helping local businesses and local farmers.  Also, we honor memberships from any other co-ops worldwide.
