I Own It
Why do you love Outpost?
For years we've been hearing that our Owners love Outpost. So one day, we decided to ask them to tell us why. So, how about you? Are you an Outpost Owner? Do you want to share the love? If so, please contact us and you too could be featured!

“Outpost always provides the best eggs, butter, bacon, soaps, tasty snacks and our personal favorite, pecan brownies. There's always an abundance of products from local vendors, such as Salsa Lady and Garden of Eden Kingdom Living. This cooperative treasure is all about our community and bringing people together.”
“Outpost was one of the things that attracted me to Milwaukee as I considered moving here ten years ago – I saw it then as a great source of local and sustainably sourced food. Now I still shop at Outpost, to buy food for my family that I can’t find at one of our farmers markets, but I now also appreciate the role that Outpost plays in the community. Outpost and its owners help to lift up many efforts and organizations that are contributing to a better Milwaukee food system – one that is good, clean, and fair for all.”
"I chose to become an owner of Outpost when the Wellness Commons opened because I believe that spending power is voting power. Each dollar spent is a vote for healthy, natural foods; and being an owner allows a deeper engagement in the cooperative."
“We love shopping at Outpost! I want to know that our money is having the greatest impact it can and becoming an owner was a chance to put my money into something I fully believe in. We trust that Outpost is thoughtful about what's in their stores and when I shop at Outpost, I trust that the food I buy is clean and healthy for my kids. When I purchase fresh produce from Outpost, I love that I’m supporting farmers in the area and that our money is going to local families, not big corporations. By being an Outpost owner, I’m supporting a company that treats its employees fairly and cares about our community. Plus, my kids love shopping on Friday evenings, then stopping at the cafe for dinner!”
