The Assabet Co-op Market, a locally sourced, community-owned grocery store owned by more than 1,300 local residents, has announced their Maynard location! The Co-op will open next summer at 2 Powder Mill Road in Maynard, a beautiful riverside property with downtown walkability in the heart of Maynard!

The Assabet Co-op Market will be a full-service grocery store that prioritizes local food producers, reduces our food’s carbon footprint, increases access to healthy food for all and keeps control of our food system here in our communities. It will feature every department found in a conventional grocery store, from produce to meat to bulk to deli, along with products sourced from more than 100 local food producers, including farms, cheese makers, brewers, bakers and more.

Everyone can shop at the Co-op, and anyone can become an Owner and get great Owner benefits, from a share of the Co-op’s profits to bulk ordering discounts to a say in the store’s farms, products and classes. The Co-op recently launched a $2M Capital Campaign to build their store, and Owners have already invested more than $650,000 in interest-paying Owner loans.
