Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Ashland Roots! Membership is a major way you can support our efforts to maintain a year-round marketplace for the purpose of providing our community with quality products that focus on health and sustainability!

Ashland Roots has two types of members – Producer Members and Non-Producer Members. A Producer Member is simply a member who sells a product in the market, while a Non-Producer Member is a member who supports us in other ways – like volunteering, sharing our social media posts, teaching classes, or even just shopping with us!

Being a member has some associated privileges. For example, members get discounts on certain items in the store, they accrue loyalty dollars to spend in the store, they can get discounts on classes and activities and can run and vote in member elections. Additionally, current members can get store credit for referring friends who buy a membership, and may be eligible for profit distribution. But best of all, members help us to help local farmers make a living by taking care of the earth, help us help the community become more self-sufficient, and help us help your family eat the best quality local and responsibly sourced foods possible!
