The Littleton Coop is a member-owned grocery store featuring local produce, hot prepared foods, deli, bulk foods, craft beer, wine and a quality grocery selection.
Member-owned Littleton Consumer Cooperative Society, Inc. strives to serve the North Country of New Hampshire and Northeast Kingdom of Vermont by providing a broad range of high quality food products, offered at a fair price, with outstanding service.
The Co-op exists to serve its members, not to make a profit for a large corporation. While membership is not required to shop at our store, our member-owners help govern the Co-op by electing our Board of Directors annually and contributing in other ways – from suggesting items for the store to serving as volunteers on Co-op committees.
Our members also help us maintain the Co-op’s mission of supporting local growers and producers, encouraging healthy life choices, and promoting environmental sustainability locally.
The movement to bring a regional cooperative food store to Littleton began in early 2006. The initial informational meeting, called by Co-op President Jeffrey Wheeler and Vice President Michael Claflin, drew an enthusiastic crowd of more than 300 people from Littleton and surrounding towns in both New Hampshire and Vermont.
The Littleton Food Co-op Store opened in May, 2009. Our 13,500 square-foot store is located at the intersection of Route 302 and Cottage Street, making it convenient to both Littleton’s celebrated downtown and Interstate-93.
Our Co-op is a catalyst for cultivating a vibrant community and regional economy.
To provide a community owned marketplace that supports local and promotes healthy choices for people and planet.
