Member-run and Member-focused Cooperative

Welcome to the Central City Co-Op, Houston’s oldest organic, sustainable food co-op! 

The Co-Op works with local farmers, ranchers, and makers that focus on organic and sustainable production, inspiring our community to come together around a seasonal, local food culture.

Located in the Houston Heights, Central City Co-Op is a “farmer first” grocery. Open six days a week, you can order weekly farm shares, shop for a la carte vegetables, fruit, grains, meat, dairy and more, and enjoy a coffee/tea from the bar. 

How does the Co-Op work?

Anyone can shop at the Co-Op. Becoming a member of the Co-Op supports the mission of the Co-Op, and provides the seed capital that the Co-Op needs to keep it running. 

Members receive benefits such a lower prices on weekly farm shares, member specials, discounts on things like composting, and even free drip coffee once a day when you visit the Co-Op.  

Your purchases directly financially support the livelihoods of farmers, ranchers, and makers, provide jobs in the community, and invest in the local community. Every dollar you spend locally also reduces your carbon footprint.

Come grow with us and help us on our mission to change people’s lives for the better, one farmer, customer, member, and community at a time.
