Happy Birthday Yelm Food Co-op

by | Apr 26, 2020 | Article | 0 comments

April 27th, 2007 we opened our little store in Yelm and

 13 years

later we’re still here!

We began at the Frontier Plaza on Mosman and 1st Street operating there until April 2012 when we moved to Yelm Ave, co-locating with Gordon’s Garden Center where you find us today.

A huge shout out to all our wonderful members, Working Members, volunteers, staff, board members, committee members  and all the other customers who have supported this dream of a member owned grocery store, the Yelm Food Co-op!

We will have a belated celebration in the store when we can do samples and stand close to each other again!

Without you this would not have been possible!

Here’s where we came from:
