Fresh, Local & Organic Within Everyone’s Reach

GreenStar’s owner discount program is designed to make natural, wholesome food and eco-friendly products more affordable to all members of the community.

FLOWER means more people in our community coming together and supporting a dynamic locally-owned cooperative committed to offering healthier food choices, promoting social justice and protecting the planet.

With FLOWER, everyone benefits – Our community, our Co-op and our planet. To qualify for the 13% FLOWER discount, you must currently receive assistance from one of the following programs:

  • Food Stamps
  • TANF – Cash Assistance
  • WIC
  • Medicaid
  • Free School Lunch Program
  • Healthy Food For All
  • Pell Grant
  • SSI (Supplemental Security Insurance)

If you’ve never been a GreenStar Co-op Owner, you will receive a one year, free trial ownership. To continue your ownership after the first year, you can do so by paying a $5 annual owner equity requirement until you reach the full ownership requirement of $90.

All GreenStar memberships are individual memberships and cannot be shared with other adults, including spouses, partners, and housemates. Only yourself and your dependent children under 18 years of age.

GreenStar has four special sales programs (Owner Deals, Co+op Basics, Co+op Deals, and Flash Sales) and items in these programs do not receive any discount. In addition, sushi, alcohol, milk, butter, eggs, and non-refrigerated bread (except TriBeca Bread) also do not receive a discount since they are sold at the lowest prices possible.
