Join Iowa Food Coop!

We’re local. We’re responsible. 85% of what you pay goes directly to our farmers. Order exactly what you want and know how your food was produced (and who produced it). Our members say our prices are fair and the food is fresher, tastier, and healthier. Choose to support producers who use practices you believe in and protect Iowa’s air, water, soil and wildlife. Your membership is free for the first six months. We know you’ll love it. Become a member today.

As a Consumer: Convenient, year-round access to hundreds of food and non-food products directly from Iowa farmers and artisans. Know where your food comes from and the people that produce it. Learn More
