About Us

City Market, Onion River Co-op, is a community-owned food cooperative with two locations in beautiful Burlington, Vermont. We offer a large selection of local, organic, and conventional foods, and thousands of Vermont-made products. Our Downtown and South End stores are open daily.

City Market provides a critical service to the residents of Burlington and the larger community by providing a wide variety of local, organic and conventional products at a fair price to all. We also offer a hot and cold food bar, grab and go meals, coffee and tea, a made-to-order sandwich bar, and a deli.

The Co-op is dedicated to supporting the local economy and strengthening the local food system. We work with over 400 independent Vermont farmers, producers, and Vermont-owned businesses to feature the widest selection of local products we can. We regularly stock over 3,000 Local or Made in Vermont products, and Local and Made in Vermont products account for 40% of our sales. As a Member-owned cooperative, we are accountable to our Members. In profitable years, the profits generated by Co-op members are returned to our Members through our Patronage Refund program.
