If there’s no co-op near you yet, we can help you start one! There are a number of start-up co-ops in our region, benefiting from the advice of other MAFCA members.

There are food co-ops throughout the United States. MAFCA member states (listed in the menu at right) are those in the mid-Atlantic region. For a more complete national directory of food co-ops, please see the Co-op Directory Service.
