Our official name is Woven Dream Anacortes Food Coop, but are doing business as Anacortes Food Coop. We opened our store in July, 2016 and we are a member-owned cooperative. A cooperative is a business controlled by the people who use it. It is a democratic organization whose earnings and assets belong to its co-owners. By patronizing and becoming an active co-owner of a co-op, you invest yourself with the power to shape that business.
Mission: A member-owned grocery store that provides food, goods and services that are local, organic or sustainably grown, and creates a gathering place for education about food, health, sustainability and local resources.
Vision: Grow a healthy and connected community by offering products and services based on cooperative and sustainable principles.

The Anacortes Food Coop also has internal, written policies and procedures and employee handbooks. The Coop is democratically managed, with all employee-team members working together to manage tasks, not each other. The Cooperative is also a social business, working to assure all Anacortes community members have equal opportunity to be owners and have a say in their food Coop!
