member recruitment


Please note that we have a sign up board in FRONT of the store on the Beverage cooler. Have a little time?  Jot down when you can come in and what you're willing to do.  We have need for short-time and one-time help (like helping with a chili lunch at the last market Sept 30, or building a shelf unit), as well as some on-going needs (like cleaning every other week, dusting food cans and shelves, helping process orders, etc.)

from your Co-op President

August 27, 2017
Hello IGMC Members,

At our last board meeting held in August, the board came up with four goals to guide us to end of year co-op sustainability:
Goals from the August 7, 2017 board meeting:
1)    Demystify the co-op and who can shop here – this will be done in conjunction with the Food Co-op Coalition through Region 5.


Thank you for your purchase of an owner share for $100! So, is that it? What does it really mean to be a member-owner?

Together we make this co-op a success. It doesn’t end with our purchase of a share! It also takes our commitment to patronize regularly. As a guide, we member-owners should purchase $65 of goods monthly to keep Ideal Green Market moving forward.

Averages show about 50% of Ideal Green Market members patronized monthly over the past eight months, for an average of $54 per member.

On average about 62% of our monthly revenues are generated by members.
