About Twin Cities Co-op Partners

In 2017, the Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op came together in a historic, cooperative consolidation to form one business. Each bringing over four decades of experience connecting people to local growers, suppliers, farmers and producers with health, sustainability, ethics and community in mind. Together we are building community by developing a strong, local, food system.

What Is a Co-op?

A consumer co-op is a business owned and democratically governed by its customers. That means that unlike a corporation, our purpose isn’t to accumulate profits for investors, but rather to meet the goals and aspirations of our community. Any surplus we generate is reinvested in the business or returned to our owners at the end of the fiscal year.

The cooperative business model has proven successful at blending and meeting value-centric and profit goals. This approach allows a cooperative to make decisions that are healthy for its owners, employees community and farmers and vendors

As an organizations we support and align with the International Cooperative Alliance’s 7 Cooperative Principles:

  • Voluntary and Open Membership
  • Democratic Member Control
  • Member Economic Participation
  • Autonomy and Independence
  • Education, Training and Information
  • Cooperation Among Cooperatives
  • Concern for Community

Community Owned

The ability to become an owner of the co-op distinguishes our store from other food grocers. Here you have the opportunity to own a part of our business; this gives you a voice in how we conduct business and the services and support we provide. Ownership also provides additional savings in our store through owner specials and monthly discounts.

What sets us apart is the way we directly cultivate and sustain a local economy right here in Minneapolis. When you spend your dollars as a TCCP owner, they stay in farm fields down the road and commercial kitchens around the corner. We’re proud of the way co-ops have transformed how people think about food and farming, and together we will continue to pioneer change.

A Rich History in Our Community

Through all the changes of nearly half a century one thing has remained a constant: our commitment to the long-term health of our local community. Through partnerships and grants we’ve built community gardens, supported farmer’s markets, brought local produce into public schools and supported food justice organizations in the Twin Cities. Our stores are more than just cooperative businesses, we’re a family. Our stores has remained small enough to meet your neighbors yet big enough to meet your needs. The co-op has always served as a gathering place; here to nourish bodies and lives.
