The People's Food Co-op is more than your average grocery store.  It is a place to learn, gather, and have fun. Check out all these great events...


PFC Farmers Markets

WHEN: 5 days weekly, all summer and fall!


WHERE: Multiple locations throughout Kalamazoo and Portage


WHAT: PFC operates three farmers markets - Kalamazoo Farmers Market, Portage Market, and 100-Mile Market! If you're looking for fresh local produce, baked goodies, cheeses, meats, prepared foods and food trucks, artisan goods, and much more, you're looking in the right place.

With markets 5 days a week, there's sure to be one right for you. Learn more about all of our markets by visting our PFC Markets website.

Our purpose is to connect customers and market businesses through honest relationships and to support community and local economies through a thriving market culture.  

We accept Bridge Cards at the market, and we participate in the Double Up Food Bucks program. SNAP benefits customers, bring your Bridge Card to the market to get your SNAP tokens. SNAP benefits will be matched up to $20 for fresh Michigan-grown fruits and veggies. That's $20 for free!

Many market vendors will accept SNAP benefits, Double Up Food Bucks, WIC Project FRESH and Market FRESH coupons.

For vendors interested in participating in the market, please contact us here.


Turkey & Pie Preorders

WHEN: Pre-orders end mid-November 


WHERE: PFC Grocery & Deli

507 Harrison Street, Kalamazoo 


WHAT: The holiday season is right around the corner, and again this year PFC is your one-stop shop for the Big Meal. Right now we're taking pre-orders for our local, pasture-raised, antibiotic-free turkeys raised exclusively for your co-op. Fresh or frozen, they're just $3.99/lb. For dessert, pre-order a handmade pie from local Victorian Bakery. Cherry or apple, $14.99 each. Pie preorders due by November 19.
FROZEN TURKEY - Joe’s Farm in Three Rivers 
Joe’s birds are a smaller size, between 10 and 15 pounds each, perfect for a smaller get-together or a meal that focuses equally on veggies, stuffing, and other seasonal treats. They’ll come frozen, too, so they’ll travel well. Preorders due by November 14.
FRESH - Old Home Place, LaGrange, IN
Henry's birds are the best and freshest around. We have a limited quantity of his birds, which are raised with Amish practices in the open field. Preorders due by November 11.
Call the store or ask a cashier to order yours. At $3.99/lb, we think they’re one of the best deals in town for antibiotic free, LOCAL, ethical turkey, and you’ll certainly taste the difference.

Easiest way to get to PFC this week 


So a construction project in downtown Kalamazoo suprised some this week. 


The best way to get to PFC this week is to take Ransom from either Porter Street, Pitcher Street, or Gull Road.


Oh and no worries, this is just a short term construction project. It is scheduled to wrap up on Monday October 31st.
