Why People's?

Carolyn and T-Bird

People’s is a community-owned, full line natural foods store where Everyone is Welcome.

Our priority at People’s is to provide the best, most wholesome food available at the lowest price possible. We believe in safe, sustainable growing and manufacturing practices. When you shop at People’s you join us in supporting local farmers, producers, and craftspeople.

People’s commits to a model of human cooperation. We focus our energy on building community , revitalizing our local economy, and promoting healthy connections to our bioregion and the earth. We realize these goals through conscious product selection, mindful business practices, and the fulfillment of cooperative principles.

Everyone is welcome here at People’s. The most important way you can support People’s and its mission is to shop here!

Cooperatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.

Because People’s is owned by the community & not by an individual, we can genuinely focus first on our customers & the services that we provide for them, not on the profit we make from them.
