Community Mercantile Market and Deli

Community Mercantile Market & Deli
901 Iowa Street
Lawrence, Kansas 66044

Since 1974, Community Mercantile has been Lawrence’s primary source for fresh, natural, organic, whole foods. “The Merc” is the largest consumer-owned natural food store in the state of Kansas. We are a cooperative retail grocery store, now more than 4,700 owners strong. We provide our community with a complete food selection including local meats, local produce, local dairy and more than 600 other locally made items. The Merc Produce Department is USDA Certified Organic with the largest selection of organic produce in town. Our in-store Delicatessen offers an array of freshly prepared, ready-to-eat foods and our Bakery creates delicious pasteries every day.

The Community Mercantile takes to heart the co-op principle “Concern for Community.” We pay a living wage to our employees. Each year we increase the amount of donations extended to organizations in Lawrence and the surrounding area. Our Nutrition Education and Outreach program serves thousands of local school children, seniors, and special needs groups, teaching nutrition basics to the general public at no cost. The Merc supports sustainable agriculture through our purchases and via volunteer staff service on area boards and committees.
