Mission & Ends

GrowCookEnjoy TogetherWhy we exist:

Mississippi Market creates positive change in the community by influencing the production, distribution and enjoyment of food.

Ends statements: As a result of all that we do, our community will have:

  • A cooperatively-owned retail source for fresh, locally-produced and healthful food that is conveniently available at fair prices to a growing number of member-owners and shoppers
  • Community, customers and staff who are better educated about the inter-connectedness of food, health and the environment
  • An increasingly robust and sustainable local food economy
  • Financially sustainable operations that support and yield economic, social and environmental returns


Mississippi Market's deli cooks up fresh, healthful food everyday.
