Meet Dennis Cooper. He's a guy with a small store and a big idea. For years, Dennis dreamed of opening a community marketplace that would showcase the wealth of diverse products produced by local farms. After lots of hard work, his dream finally came true last month when Cooper's Public Market opened its doors in downtown Novato.

Customers have been flocking to the modest 1550 square-foot space ever since! Located at 1425 Grant Avenue, Cooper's stocks the finest sustainably-raised fresh produce, meats, eggs, dairy, artisan cheeses, honey, olive oil, breads, herbs, skin care and more--all sourced from family-owned farms, ranches, dairies, and bakeries within a thirty-mile radius of its location.

We're pleased to announce that Stemple Creek Ranch grass-fed beef and lamb are available in the meat case at Cooper's Public Market! Customers will find a selection of our prime cut steaks and roasts, ground beef, lamb sausage, and more. If you don't see what you want or have something special in mind, just ask Dennis to order it for you.

And if you're looking for a quick, healthy answer to your nightly dinner dilemma, Cooper's features weekly "grab n' go" dinners from White Rose Ranch. They come conveniently bagged with pre-measured, locally sourced ingredients (including our beef and lamb) and a recipe to make dinner a snap. You can view the current menu and place your paid pre-order on Cooper's website.

Dennis hopes his one-of-a-kind grocery store will be a gathering place that connects patrons to producers. "My goal is to promote community, nutrition, and environmental stewardship while supporting truly local businesses and family farms," he says. We think that's a philosophy worth supporting! Thank you, Dennis, for all you're doing to bring attention to small local family farms like ours.

Cooper's Public Market is open Monday-Saturday from 9:00am to 7:00pm, with reduced hours on Sunday from 10:00am-4:00pm. For more information, call Cooper's Public Market at 415-895-1780.
