arena co-op entrance
Arena Market and Cafe is hiring! We are expanding our leadership team and need a kitchen lead. More info, please visit this page.

The co-op will soon install a whole-store stand-by generator so we can remain open and serve the community when the electricity gets interrupted.

The Arena Market and Café offers a warm, lighted, safe place with hot food, coffee and drinks, fresh refrigerated produce and dairy, filtered water, bags of ice, essential supplies, wi-fi internet access, and power to charge you devices.

Here are ways you can help the co-op:

  • Shop more at the co-op! (Shop local and avoid driving time and costs.)
  • Pay your membership up to the $300 full-share level.
  • Donate to the co-op.
  • Pay-it-forward into your house charge account and wait until spring to use it (money in your bank account earning precious little interest could be helping the co-op).
  • Offer the co-op a shareholder loan for larger amounts.
  • Encourage others to join.            

We rely upon our members to support the co-op. This generator proposal will help the co-op support the community.

Arena Market and Café is a grocery store and eating establishment for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We are a locally owned cooperative market specializing in organic and natural food that is sustainably and regionally produced.

Our market stocks healthy, delicious food, including fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, frozen foods, and items special to the co-op, such as raw sprouted crackers and Dandy blend coffee alternative. We have a deli and a bulk section. We also carry environmentally friendly personal and home care products. We are pleased to offer a fine selection of local and organic wines and beers along with many non-alcoholic beverages. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Please ask one of our friendly employees if we can order something for you.

The café is a cozy, welcoming place to meet friends and enjoy food prepared daily: breakfast burritos, soups, salads, sandwiches, a full coffee/espresso menu, paninis, baked goods, and an organic salad bar. We also offer signature vegan and gluten-free choices. You can enjoy a glass of organic wine or beer with your meal, and wi-fi is free!

Bringing our community together through food is at the heart of everything we do, starting with our business structure. The co-op is a perfect place to meet friends at any time and to gather before a movie or live show at the theater. Many of our dedicated staff are long-time employees, and we provide first jobs for local residents. Volunteers contribute their time and skills to continually improve and maintain this community resource.

While everyone is welcome to shop and dine here, more than 500 members are now invested in the co-op and benefit from discounts on purchases. If you aren’t already a member, we’d love to have you join us! For more information, please see our Membership page.

Please share the good news with our friends in the community. Those people who shop at the co-op and want to pay with the SNAP (supplemental nutrition assistance program) benefits may use their EBT cards again.

We struggled to regain authorization after it expired during the US government shutdown many months ago. Lots of paperwork, even a site visit to audit our store!

So, now it works. If you know someone who participates in the SNAP program, please encourage them to shop at the co-op for healthy, natural food.
