Community Owned & Not-for-profit
At the Co-op we’re proud to sell good, clean food that doesn’t cost the earth. Fresh, organic fruit and veg and local produce – grown right here in the Blue Mountains. We stock everything you need to nourish and care for your family; from growing your own food to creating a healthy home. We’re a not-for-profit co-operative established in 1981 and owned by over 2,500 members. We’re run by a team of 25 paid staff, assisted by our valuable volunteers, and overseen by a board of directors. Everyone can shop here and anyone can be a member. You can buy as much or as little as you want, and reduce waste by bringing and re-using your own containers. Together we work to support local makers, and connect and inspire our vibrant community through donations, education and enrichment programs. Our two shops are open 7 days a week, right in the heart of Katoomba. Come in and check us out, we’d love to show you around!
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the Blue Mountains, the Darug and Gundungurra peoples, upon whose land the Co-op stands. We acknowledge the deep care of, and connection to, country that sits at the heart of Aboriginal culture and we seek to build and nurture our community, and care for the land and rivers, with this long and significant history in mind. We pay our deep respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
The main shop will be open 11am – 3pm on public holiday Monday 2nd October. The Big Little Shop will be closed.
