Dorchester Food Co-op Makes Plans to Open; Would Include a Cafe

A community grocery store may be on its way to Dorchester, and the space would include an area where customers could gather.

According to an article from Universal Hub, plans are in the works for the Dorchester Food Co-op to open on the ground floor of an affordable housing building on Bowdoin Street, with the post saying that the 6,000-square-foot store would include a cafe, pending approval of a food-serving license. The website for the store says that it will be worker-owned and "serve and reflect the wide variety of cultural, racial, and socio-economic groups that make up the neighborhoods of Boston."

If all goes as planned, the Dorchester Food Co-op should open sometime this year.

The address for the upcoming Dorchester Food Co-op is 191-195 Bowdoin Street, Dorchester, MA, 02122. The website for the store is at
