About Our Co-op

History of the Co-op

The Silver City Food Co-op originated in 1974 and some of the founding members are still active in the Co-op today. In the late

1980’s, the Co-op moved the store to its current location and

bought the building a few years later. Over the years, the store has

been remodeled several times to meet our growing needs.

All positions are posted in-house for two weeks so current staff may apply, thereafter we may draw from our applications on file before posting openings.

Please print and bring your completed application to the store in person.
