40th Anniversary Celebration Open House & Food Tasting Fair

40-anniversaryBaker Food Co-op is celebrating 40 years in business, and the public is invited to join the celebration on Friday, May 6 from 4-6 pm.  Come and enjoy meeting friends as you taste free samples of many foods, register for door prizes, and take advantage of a Co-op membership discount.

Baker Food Co-op has been supplying wholesome natural foods and products to the people of Baker County and northeastern Oregon for the past 40 years. The Co-op has a rich history beginning with its inception as a buying club at Ramon and Carolyn Lara’s home. Ramon and Carolyn are still active members, and we honor them for their many years of involvement and leadership.

The Co-op is truly unique because it operates primarily through the efforts of dedicated working members, and three equally dedicated part-time staff. Working members not only receive a discount on purchases, but they find that the Co-op is a great place to make lasting friendships as well as promote the spirit of cooperation while serving the community, which is the core foundation of the Co-op. 

Anyone can shop at Baker Food Co-op, but people find that buying a life time membership for just $25 per household pays big dividends!  A 15% discount off purchases is yours for the first month.  Thereafter, your discount is 5%….unless you take advantage of the working member discounts.  By working just 4-5 hours a month you can continue receiving your initial 15% discount.  Or you can work up to 10 hours a month to earn 30% off all your purchases.  These discounts amount to huge savings on groceries, personal care items, household cleaning products, and many other healthful products!  Baker Food Co-op is definitely a good option for your household shopping needs.

Over the years the Co-op has continually expanded to meet the changing needs of people who desire to pursue a healthful lifestyle.  Addressing the need for more space, the Co-op recently purchased the building at 2008 Broadway in Baker City.  This building, which serves customers in a central location, is a part of Historic Baker City.  The Co-op is dedicated to maintaining and upgrading the building to provide improved service and make your shopping experience more enjoyable.
