Affordable, quality, local, healthy food delivered to our community by our community.
The Common Grocer is Wellington's first low-cost, member-owned, plastic-free grocery co-operative. Based at The ReMakery, we purchase wholesale and our members run the store themselves – this keeps our prices extremely low.
Members pay a small annual fee and give a few hours of their time in exchange for accessing food and household items at extremely low prices.
Alongside reducing costs we also reduce waste. The Common Grocer doesn't provide single-use plastic shopping bags or containers, instead we encourage our members to reuse and repurpose what they already have.
The Common Grocer also runs workshops, where members of the community share their diverse knowledge, teaching others how to cook delicious meals from scratch, make natural cleaning products, and much much more!
