The search is up: we’re super-excited to announce our future home at 2746 N Milwaukee! 10,000 sq. ft. = full-service grocery + deli + beer&wine + community room. That means 35 new living-wage jobs, more dollars to local producers, and a growing capacity to meet our cooperative mission. Many many thanks for your continued support... stay tuned for project updates!

Join us for a community celebration of cooperation: four afternoon hours filled with good food, tunes, lawn games, and neighborhood hangtime!
This time around, it's potluck style! The co-op will anchor the table with a bunch of big, fresh dishes sourced from our favorite farms and plenty of snacks. Your ready-to-share additions are most welcome!
Wednesday August 19, 6:30-8pm at Altgeld/Sawyer Corner Farm.
Hang out, eat up, and get down with the Dill Pickle community! Join us for the third of a bimonthly series of potlucks, brought to you by the Dill Pickle Block Club. Bring food or drink, bring a friend, or just bring yourself!
Our friends at Altgeld Sawyer Corner Farm will be hosting us in the garden during their weekly community compost night! Bring along your food scraps to be turned into healthy soil used to improve the farm's yield for donations to Christopher House's pantry. More info here. (No meats, oils, or dairy, please!)
The Block Club is where co-op values meet community. We’re a group of Dill Pickle owners who work together to offer workshops about health and sustainability, support food justice actions and movements, and create community-building events for the co-op and the general public. We hold bi-monthly potlucks for the co-op community to enjoy great food and the pleasure of being together. At these potlucks, you’ll hear a bit about what’s happening in the co-op and around the neighborhood. You’ll also find out how to get involved with upcoming activities. Block Club participants can receive store discounts through the co-op's Hands On Owner program, and we’re always looking for more folks to get involved!
Dave the Knife Sharpener will be in the house this upcoming Sunday, July 12, from 3-4 pm to sharpen those dull knives of yours! Bring your blade and $5 cash to get sharp!
