Become a Vendor at River Valley Co-op!

Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at River Valley Co-op! We are always looking for new and exciting ways to provide fresh, local, seasonal, sustainable and accessible food to our entire community.

How to Apply

The first step in the onboarding process is to complete the River Valley Co-op New Vendor Questionnaire. Your responses will be reviewed by the Category Management Department for Center Store or managers in the fresh departments. Fully completing the questionnaire and providing us with the requested documents will help ensure an efficient onboarding process. Once the vendor questionnaire is complete you are welcome to mail sample products to our administrative offices for Center Store categories. 

At this time, we're actively looking for the following products...

  • Local or Regional Shelf-Stable Non-Dairy Beverages
  • Local or Regional Dry Pantry Staples (including beans, rice and pasta)

Please note we are not carrying any food items containing CBD at this time, so we ask that you do not submit these products for consideration.
