Launched our Community Partners program

This an exciting new benefit for owners! Show your owner card at participating Community Partners to receive discounts such as 20% off yoga packages at Bikram Yoga, 10% off services at Hair Vyce Studio, 5% off at Firehouse Bikes and more.

Redesigned our owner cards

Mariposa Owner Card

Use it while you shop to speed up your transaction and carry it with you around town to receive discounts at our Community Partners.

Began referring to our members as owners

As a Mariposa Food Co-op owner, you hold equity, or stock, in our business. Unlike privately held discount clubs, our members make business decisions democratically to ensure the health of the Co-op and community.

Introduced new owner handbook

Mariposa Owner Handbook

New owners are no longer required to attend orientations. Upon joining, owners will receive a Mariposa Owner Handbook that explains the ins and outs of being an owner at Mariposa. Lost your handbook? You can reference it on our website.

Redesigned our new website

Out with old and in with the new! Our new website is easier to navigate and mobile-friendly.

Redefined our bylaws
