Arena Market & Cafe is a full-service natural foods grocery located in Point Arena, California. We are a member-owned business whose main objective is to serve our members. By joining our co-op, members receive greater involvement in day-to-day shopping, as well as incentives to shop locally, save money, and support the goals of a sustainable community.
With a focus on locally produced products and democratic decision-making, Arena Market & Cafe co-op members have more control over the quality of food and goods in our lives.
Arena Market & Cafe began in the winter of 2009, in answer to the community's desire to have a full service, natural foods market in Point Arena. By serving the needs of our diverse membership, we look forward to growing through the years. With more than 2300 square feet in the downstairs of the historic Oddfellows building, we carry a more diverse line of products at a more affordable price.
Most people driving by the Arena Market & Cafe will see us as a retail store that specializes in natural foods, supplements and related items. However, at a fundamental level, we are very different from profit-oriented enterprises: Like the thousands of other cooperatives around the world, Arena Market & Cafe is owned by its members. Anyone can become a member, and one does not have to be a member to shop at co-op. However, only members enjoy special benefits, discounts, and voting privileges.
