Membership Gift Certificates Now Available!

We posted this amazing stat on our facebook page, but as the shopping season ramps up, we thought it was worth taking another look at.

  Have you ever considered giving a gift of a membership to The West Michigan Cooperative to one of your local "foodie" friends?  If you are interested in purchasing one, inquire at pickup night or email us at

Happy Holidays!!

Holiday Date Changes: Mark Your Calendars!

Hello CoOp Members!

We hope your holiday plans are coming together without a hitch.  While you are planning your festivities, please remember these important changes to our usual schedule.

  • November pickup night happens on Tuesday, November 25 (we move it up a day to allow time before your turkey day).  We will see you there to get all of your holiday table goodies.  This is traditionally one of our busiest nights, so come prepared to transport all of your goods.

  • December shopping cycle is moved up by a week, as well as our December pickup night.  Shopping cycle starts the Monday morning after Thanksgiving (December 1), and runs through Monday night (December 8).

  • December pickup night is Wednesday, December 17th.

Have safe and happy travels this holiday season!

"Meet Your Producers Series": Nutri-Paws

Don't forget to stop by the table in the front room and get a Thanksgiving treat for your furry family members!

"Nutri-Paws has been a local pet food producer and member of the West Michigan Co-Op since 2012.  We make all of our products right here in Grand Rapids, using human-grade, high-quality, fresh ingredients-- many of which come from local farms and fellow West Michigan Co-Op producers. Our products are a wonderful choice for pets with food sensitivities because they are gluten, soy, and corn free, and best of all, the taste appeal our products offer pets is second to none.  Your dog will love eating our homemade food and treats and it's a high-quality product you can feel good about feeding your pet  
To commemorate the coming Thanksgiving holiday, we are offering $1.00 off both our traditional Turkey Biscuits and White Confection-dipped Turkey Biscuits, and $3.00 off of our holiday homemade dog treat gift baskets."

Please Join Our Annual Meeting Wed., April 16 6pm

Annual Meeting Wednesday, April 16
6:00 pm at 1475 Michigan St.

Hello CoOp Members!  It looks like we may be finally "out of the woods", as far as the weather is concerned.  We hope you are all enjoying this taste of early Spring.  If you have time next week, we would like to invite you to come to the West Michigan CoOp's annual meeting.

   This is a chance for all members to hear what the Board of Directors has been up to, as well as our plans for the up-coming year.  We will also have a spot on our board of directors opening up, as well as opportunities to talk with committee members.  Any one who has been a member of the CoOp for at least a year is eligible to be a board member, and anyone is welcome to get involved with a committee.

  If you have been considering getting more involved, or have questions or ideas to share, this is your chance!  We will also be serving food and beverage, so it will be a nice chance to mingle with fellow members and producers.  For planning purposes, please send an email to if you are going to attend.  We hope to see you there.
