City Market, Onion River Co-op, is a 16,000 sq. ft. community-owned food cooperative located in beautiful downtown Burlington, Vermont. City Market is Burlington’s only downtown grocery store, open 363 days per year from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
City Market provides a critical service to the residents of Burlington and the larger community by providing conventional, organic and local products at a fair price to all.
While, by definition, co-ops exist for their owners, the Onion River Co-op's definition of community expands beyond our owners to encompass our internal community of employees, our local community of Burlington (and beyond) residents, and our outreach partners.
The Co-op is extremely dedicated to supporting the local economy, enhancing the sustainability of agriculture and eradicating food insecurity.
We work with over 2,000 Vermont vendors to feature the widest selection of local products in the state. 73% of the vendors we do business with are located in Vermont and over 60 cents of every dollar in sales stays here. We are member-owned, so the profits generated by Co-op members are returned to them through our Patronage Refund program and recirculate back through our local economy.
Through donations, shared resources and Member Worker volunteers, the Co-op partners with local organizations like Hunger Free Vermont and the Boys and Girls Club of Burlington to ensure that together we meet the needs of those in our community who are most food insecure.
