Welcome to Durango Natural Foods Co-op and Durango, Colorado
Located in Durango, Colorado, a town with a rich history and a sought out tourist destination, Durango Natural Foods Co-op (DNF Co-op) was the first natural food market in the region. It began in 1973 as a food buying club and was incorporated in 1974 as a natural food store, operating for many years on an all volunteer and donation basis. From these humble, community-supported roots, DNF Co-op has grown to serve nearly 1400 active co-op owners within its 2500 sq. ft. retail store with an adjoining warehouse of the same size. With over 60 items in the store produced within Colorado and the region, DNF Co-op is unique in that it is one of the only natural food markets in our region that specializes in selling goods produced by local farmers, ranchers and other food and body care purveyors.
