SINCE 1972 We are a community-owned grocery store emphasizing whole, local and organic foods Founded by an energetic group of activists in the 1970’s, the Syracuse Cooperative Market has been the Westcott/University neighborhood’s only grocery store for over 40 years. The Co-op’s founders envisioned a cooperatively-owned community. They wanted access food that was locally-produced and of high quality. They wanted to support local growers and producers. They wanted to contribute to a justice-based society. They wanted access to capital. They wanted to transform society and live well. The Syracuse Cooperative Market is a community-owned grocery store focusing on local and organic produce, craft beer, bulk foods and a grab-and-go deli. With locations in the Westcott and Downtown neighborhoods, the Co-op is driven by owner participation and committed to community service. We are open to the public and carry a full line of natural and organic grocery items, fresh local produce and vegan/vegetarian/omnivore grab-and-go options. It is our mission to provide great food, be a hub for a strong community, and promote the local economy.
