Community-Owner Shares

A Community-Owner Share allows you to become part of the Apple Street Market Cooperative, a member. While you do not need to be a member to shop at Apple Street Market Cooperative, a high percentage of membership from the Community will allow us offer you a better store, better services, and better products. As a Community-Owner, you are entitled to selective discounts on all of our merchandise as well as special events held by the market.

Community-Owner Shares are Fully Refundable

Your Community-Owner share is not alienable. You cannot sell it to anyone else nor hold more than one share, however, the shares are fully refundable to Apple Street Market.

Contact Information

We use your contact information to communicate with you about Apple Street Market Cooperative. We never share your information with anyone else.


All Community-Owner Shares cost $100. However, Community-Owners may apply for a subsidized price by paying $10 if they qualify for Medicaid Expansion, Free and Reduced Lunch at Public Schools, or SNAP benefits. Eligibility shall be assessed by the non-profit organization Churches Active In Northside (CAIN) in consultation with the Cincinnati Union Cooperative Initiative (CUCI). The cost and rights of a Subsidized Community-Owner share are the same, however, donations shall cover 90$ to make up the full purchase price.
