    The Moscow Food Co-op
    The Moscow Food Co-op was established in 1973, and for 46 years we have promoted our cooperative identity by providing healthy food and creating a healthier planet and a stronger, healthier community. We are guided by more than 7,700 owners, and welcome anyone to shop in our store. In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members “believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others," and aim to be good stewards of the earth and each other. The Moscow Food Co-op is located at 121 East 5th St. in Moscow, Idaho, and is open every day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. We also have a satellite location on the University of Idaho campus in Moscow at 822 Elm Street. We are governed by a democratically elected Board. Both the Moscow Food Co-op’s past and future are rooted in cooperative values and principles as expressed through the International Cooperative Alliance.
