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. We are always excited to add more vendors and producers into our stores, and we invite all to contact us about becoming one of our local vendor partners!

How to Apply

New Vendors and product request email: do not bring any samples or literature to the store or main office.

How to Apply for Perishable Departments

Please contact the Managers in the Perishable Departments below to become a Vendor:

Meat and Seafood Contact: Jimmy Zilaro
Produce: Henry Kryeski
Wine, Cheese and Beer: Rob Schark

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.

For Current Vendors with New Products 

If you are a current vendor with a line extension or new product to introduce to the category team, please email with a price list, as well as a completed New Item Vendor Worksheet (this must be downloaded, filled out and emailed to us as an attachment).

Please do not drop off samples or literature at the store or administrative office. Products will be reviewed based on a category schedule and at that time we will contact you about specific products needing to be sampled. We hope that this strategic approach will allow us to maintain a precise review process and decrease expenses for our local vendors.
