Best of Delaware County

Fresh. Friendly. Local.

Since its founding in 1937 as a cooperative food market, the CO-OP has evolved to offer area residents a convenient shopping destination for high quality and fresh produce, meats, seafood, specialty and grocery products. The CO-OP’s mission of promoting healthy, delicious foods, and its focus on educational and event programming has made it a commercial and social hub for surrounding Delaware County communities.
