The Rutland Area Food Co-op is a community-owned and operated business committed to improving the quality of life for people in the Rutland region through the sale of whole and natural food products.

The Co-op has four distinct goals of operation:

To provide affordable access to natural and whole products, especially food products, to the Rutland area community.

To provide a market for local and regional producers of natural, minimally processed products.

To provide a community building and educational center where people can work, shop and learn together.

To support and work cooperatively with other individuals and organizations whose purposes are similar to those of the Co-op.
