About US

Rochester's First and Only Cooperative
It's true. Abundance Cooperative Market is Rochester's first and only cooperatively-owned natural products retail grocer. Although we opened to the public in 2001, our history spans more than forty years, beginning with the Genesee Co-op Natural Foodstore in 1968. We provide shareholders and non-shareholders a friendly meeting place, healthful food, and safe household products at reasonable prices. We give priority to buying local, organic, sustainable, and/or socially responsible products.  For more information, you can review the "ends" statement in our
Policy Governance handbook.

Why We're Cooperatively Owned
Cooperatives exist to serve like minded people working for a common cause, which is why eight hundred million people world-wide belong to cooperatives. Learn more at

Co+Op = Stronger Together
Abundance is a member of the
National Cooperative Grocers (NCG). This partnership offers customers competitive prices and great monthly sales on hundreds of products through the Co+Op Deals program. Check out the StrongerTogether site for more information on what our collective selves are up to.

We also have "Monthly Shareholder Deals", which offer significant savings for our owners. And our "Basics" program offers every day low prices to both owners and non-owners on a variety of basic grocery items. See Savings and Shareholder Benefits
