Our CO-OP Community
Downtown Burlington is more than just shopping and dining. We have an eclectic community with lots of people pursuing their individual and shared passions. Here’s a few examples of how you can GET IN to Community in downtown Burlington:
Company Shops Market
Burlington’s coop grocery also serves as a community hub with live music and beer and wine by the glass on Friday nights and special events throughout the year. Their hot-bar and made to order sandwiches make the coop “downtown’s gourmet cafeteria.” It is the place to run into Burlington’s movers and shakers.
Steam Junction: More than a Maker’s Space
Embrace your maker identity and join Steam Junction! This new downtown business offers monthly memberships and is the hub of Alamance County’s makers community. The Alamance Maker’s Guild hold their monthly meetings here. Here you can learn to use a CNC machine, a 3-D printer, wood-working skills, embroidery and more! Explore a hobby or start your hands-on business. Features a retail gallery of area maker-made products.
Burlington Beer Works Cooperative (Coming Soon)
Find out how to become an owner of downtown Burlington’s second cooperative and what will be only the third cooperatively owned brewery and restaurant in the nation! With an expected opening in 2017, BBW will be located at the corner of Front and S. Main, across from the Historic Depot!
Burlington Downtown Farmer's Market
Get Fresh on Front! Centrally located at the corner of Spring street and Front street, the Burlington Downtown Farmer's Market is a producer-only market that sells products from a 60 mile radius of downtown. With a variety of organic, gluten free, and sustainable foods, as well as locally made artisan crafts and goods, this market is sure to have something for everyone. Hosted every Saturday morning between April and October, check back regularly for seasonal vegetables and home-grown meats.
