The Lexington Cooperative Market was formed in 1971 by 35 members who wanted access to whole foods at reasonable prices. It has evolved over the past 33 years from an entirely member run organization to a fully functioning store with paid staff and over 3000 Member-Owners. Countless customers from the neighborhood and surrounding communities shop at the Lexington Co-op for fresh produce, organic groceries and now freshly prepared take home foods. Member-owners can take pride in a $20 billion Natural Foods Industry that they have pioneered with their dedication, hard work and cooperation!
Over the last 6 years, the Co-op has doubled in size to become one of the busiest stores in the country in terms of sales per square foot. For the last few years the Board, the Staff and the Member-Owners of the Co-op have been working on an expansion project that has tripled our retail space and will pave the way for future growth of the Cooperative community in Buffalo. This is truely an exciting time to be involved in the Lexington Co-op.
Located at 807 Elmwood Ave at Lancaster, the Lexington Cooperative Market is open to everyone to shop and to join! Hours are 8:00am to 10:00pm daily!
