Greetings. You’re now entering the web site of The Little Store That Could, the Regent Market Co-op (RMC). It’s been the neighborhood store for over 90 years and opened its doors when Calvin Coolidge was President of the United States. As neighbors support RMC, RMC supports the neighbors with food and supplies, (whenever they are available) from local distributors, farmers and producers. RMC strives to have an excellent selection of meats, breads, cheese and tasty vegetables. The RMC staff stands ready to serve you and answer questions you might have. You can shop the store as a member or as a non-member. But any Madison food co-op membership entitles shoppers to the member discount rate and to get Randy Bucks.
The Regent Market Co-op is on the corner of Regent and Allen Streets. It’s located near West High School and a connected walkable community that believes in good, healthy food. The market offers both students and shoppers daily specials from Randy’s kitchen.
And for whatever reason you’re unable to get to the little store, RMC delivers. But if you are driving, you can pull up right in front of the little store and park. Couldn’t be easier.

Would you believe that Regent Market Coop is turning 90 years old this May! Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States! In celebration of our “little store that could” we will be having a birthday party on Friday, May 3rd. Our street fair and celebration will again coincide with Gallery Night but will be expanded with many new local vendors and festivities wrapping around the corner and joining up with the Froth House on the other side. The money machine, sponsored by our fellow Coop, Summit Credit Union, will again make an appearance. Neighborhood kids should work on their fast-buck-capture skills in preparation for a chance inside the machine. So although the current organization as a cooperative is only a decade old, the local goods, dairy and meat counter along with friendly grocery staff, have been serving this neighborhood for nine decades.
Two Cards in One:
Reward Points and Convenient Easy Pre-Pay
For Members and The Store
Several of our members have discovered a convenient new way to pay for groceries without worrying about cash or checks, and without using a credit card and the inevitable fee the store is charged by the card company. Instead, they prepay a set amount to the store and gradually draw down on that account as they fulfill their grocery buying needs over the next several weeks or months and get reward points! Reducing cash and card transactions saves your cooperative money each time you shop, and saves time at the register, too! Consider establishing a pre-paid account and see how convenient shopping at RMC can be!
