A co-op is a community of people interested in working together to their mutual benefit. Central City's members are interested in having the freshest, organic produce available at a reasonable prices. Central City purchases produce in the largest quantities possible and divides it among their members in the form of shares or through a market setting. The co-op provides the opportunity for communities of people to come together each week in different parts of the city to purchase high quality, organic food at reasonable prices. Central City offers as much produce as possible from local sources that embrace the practice of compassionate and chemical free growing. CCC carries only produce and products from plants.
There is a membership fee for the co-op, but visitors can purchase a Dollar Day Pass any time they want to purchase organic food at Central City Co-op.
