Who are we?

Terre Foods Cooperative Market is a member-owned, whole foods grocery store forming in Terre Haute, Indiana. We will be a full service grocery store, open seven days a week, that will serve Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley community by providing access to local, organic whole foods and products at a fair price.

The group forming Terre Foods is made up of people who value good food as well as fostering a strong, sustainable community. We believe so strongly in the benefits of a cooperative grocery store that many of us have become member-owners before the storefront has opened. The best ways that you can help make this market a reality are becoming a member and telling others about our venture. Once our doors are open, everyone, members and non-members alike, will be able to shop at a place that focuses on quality and building community.

20 By 20: A Roadmap to Get There

October 2016 Update

Dear Members:

You may think we're in the dark days of autumn, but as far as Terre Foods is concerned, we're seeing light. Our site selection committee is meeting regularly and working on securing the store's site; we hope to have that announcement to you, our committed member-owners, by late winter. Your membership committee is having some fun, as we always do, cooking up ideas to get what we call 20 by 20! That's 20 new members by November 20th. When we do that, we'll be at 800 members and that's something to celebrate! Check out what we're doing:

Business Outreach

We have several members who are business owners in the Wabash Valley. To those owners we offer that we'll be at your place of business on the day and time of your choosing, offering Terre Foods members a discount or item of your choosing when they shop or dine. This will be a one time flash sale type of thing, for only an hour or two. The details are totally up to the business owner. We'll advertise the week's sale event on social media in advance and would like to start in the beginning of November. Business Owners: do you have a slow day/night when you would welcome some Terre Foods traffic? We'll be prepared to take in memberships, of course, so newbies can get their perk. Let's see how many places we can turn up in throughout November. Contact to schedule your Terre Foods Flash Sale.

Member Parties

Member parties have been successful for Terre Foods in our past. Here's what happens. A member invites friends and/or family over for whatever kind of event fits into their life. Happy Hour, casual potluck, fire ring social, beer making event, you get the picture. Terre Foods provides the entertainment. We'll have a knowledgeable person present who can answer questions along with brochures and information to get anyone that wants to join in the loop. We've got plenty of energetic folks who've been at this a long time and we know the ins and outs of cooperative grocery membership. We've always been excited to engage those who have questions and the smaller familiar group gathering is a welcome venue. We have helps we can share on organizing your gathering; just ask! Contact to let us know your interest. Our website is another way to join; Click on 'Join the Co-op' and see 'Becoming a Member Owner' in the drop down menu. All you need to know is right there. Let's land this 20 by 20 goal! Happy Beautiful Autumn to you all.

For the Membership Team,
Susie Lannoo

I recently moved from Austin, TX to Terre Haute, IN and love everything about this community: the people are nice and inviting; it's affordable and easy to get around; and it's so close to many other exciting communities like Indianapolis and Chicago. The only thing I'm missing about Austin, besides a few friends, is my food co-op. Belonging to a co-op is more than just the opportunity to purchase organic and natural foods, it's a chance to be a part of a community of people working to make Terre Haute, and the world, a better place.

Lookout Farm is a local producer of hay, beans, wheat, corn and Alpacas and Alpaca products. We also raise chickens, herbs, vegetables and eggs for sale. We welcome the organization of the new co-op market, and intend to support it by supplying quality food products for sale to customers interested in natural food products. We feel that this new venture will serve a much-needed place in our community.
