We are at 858 members of our 1000 member goal by store opening.
Our future store (under renovation) is located at 1253 Lafayette Ave in 12 Points in Terre Haute.
The building was bought in April, 2021. Members and Volunteers worked on interior of building thru 2022. ARPA funding requests initiated early 2023. Official Building Permits obtained May 2023, beginning with electrical work. Current goal: 2024 opening of a smaller store area, approximately 1,500 square feet.
Who are we?
Terre Foods Cooperative Market is a member-owned, whole foods grocery store forming in Terre Haute, Indiana. We will be a full service grocery store, open seven days a week at, that will serve Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley community by providing access to local, organic whole foods and products at a fair price.
The group forming Terre Foods is made up of people who value good food as well as fostering a strong, sustainable community. We believe so strongly in the benefits of a cooperative grocery store that many of us have become member-owners before the storefront has opened. The best ways that you can help make this market a reality are becoming a member and telling others about our venture. Once our doors are open, everyone, members and non-members alike, will be able to shop at a place that focuses on quality and building community.

Created February 22, 2024. Use this Google Form year-round to indicate your interest in serving on a Committee, on the Board, or just interested in volunteering generally.
Volunteers may serve on a standard committee, usually with a commitment of 1-2 years for the sake of stability. Volunteers may wish to work on specific projects or have specific projects for the organization based on their particular set of skills, availability, etc. Committees may meet [in-person or online] with regular meetings or may be called upon to work periodically throughout the year. Other volunteer opportunities exist outside of the committee structure, involving one-time, short-term, or longer commitments.
Ideally committee members would come on board at the start of the 'new year' following the Annual Meeting, usually February or March, but please fill out this form whenever you are ready to become a volunteer. Members of the Board will be in contact with you with further details.

I recently moved from Austin, TX to Terre Haute, IN and love everything about this community: the people are nice and inviting; it's affordable and easy to get around; and it's so close to many other exciting communities like Indianapolis and Chicago. The only thing I'm missing about Austin, besides a few friends, is my food co-op. Belonging to a co-op is more than just the opportunity to purchase organic and natural foods, it's a chance to be a part of a community of people working to make Terre Haute, and the world, a better place.

Lookout Farm is a local producer of hay, beans, wheat, corn and Alpacas and Alpaca products. We also raise chickens, herbs, vegetables and eggs for sale. We welcome the organization of the new co-op market, and intend to support it by supplying quality food products for sale to customers interested in natural food products. We feel that this new venture will serve a much-needed place in our community.
