Please make your (our) financial information available to owners. I think it's reasonable for our owners to be able to review sales figures, co-op profit, and debt. Thank you! P.S. I am a former board member. I also know that other co-ops are far more transparent about this information than Common Ground.
Hello! Apparently it is fun and fine to fantasize. I fantasize that a Common Ground co-op will come to North Carolina. Fine right? P.s. Thanks for the water fountain!
Hehehe! We hope we one day can expand and we are glad to know you want to bring the co-op home with you! Keep dreaming, we hope we can make them come true!
I love this place. Love Love Love. We sometimes shop here. I love the dried fruit collections!
Oh! Dried fruit, especially in the bulk section, it is delightful. Several of the staff really enjoy the dried mangos!
Please carry more than one kind of Fluoride toothpaste (especially Tom's). Thanks!
Thank you! We will look into this! We currently carry a few types of Fluoride toothpastes and put out more signage about Fluoride. Thank you for the feedback!
Nitro cold brew coffee ( I've had Stumptown before in a can).
We will look into this product! Check out our beverage case for a product similar to this!
Vincent in the Deli is great!
I am at a big loss for Banana Bread. I really miss it with my coffee and the taste of it!
Oh! Thank you for being such a fan. We've told our bakery team about how you miss it. The bakery decided to discontinue the banana bread because it wasn't selling enough instead decided to feature Pekara's bakery items. If you need something to accompany your coffee, I highly recommend the almond croissant. It's delicious!
Would thoroughly enjoy 1) Freywine Cabernet Sauvignon 2) Crumpets in the freezer section.
We had the best day visiting the studio and home of Sarah and Charles Wisseman, the featured Co-op artists! We look forward to hosting an Art Gallery Reception on January 27th, from 6:30-8:30pm in our Flatlander Classroom and we hope you can join us.
Sarah and Charles, owners of the Co-op, make a powerful couple because they are both brilliant and creative artists, respectful world travelers, esteemed experts in their academic realms of archeology and pathology, and delightful to be around.

Food will soon be seen as Medicine.
Anyone interested in organic, healthy and local food has doubtlessly heard one thing over and over again: "That food is too expensive." The American Heart Association's Circulation journal noted in 2014 that 86% of healthcare costs are devoted to chronic diseases.
Common Ground Food Co-operative is committed to supporting a vital and inclusive community and this End especially applies to downtown Urbana where our co-op is located. Given our dedication to democratic governance and improving our community we are especially excited by the possibilities inherent in the Open Scene project.
