About Us

Locally Grown, Community Owned

The East Aurora Co-op Market is a community owned natural foods grocery store. Founded in 2009, EACM came from a desire to create access to whole, nutritious foods, with an emphasis on local, organic and minimally-processed products.

The co-op opened its doors in June 2016 after seven years of diligent and painstaking work by a group of volunteer owners. Now, this co-op community shops together, feeding families and friends with wholesome foods. Through EACM, owners and shoppers are routing grocery dollars to WNY farmers and food producers and supporting great jobs in our community with every bag of groceries.
