Join the Co-op!

We are excited that you are interested in joining MoFACo. MoFACo is a local only curated co-op located in downtown St. George, UT. It is managed by the Modern Farm and Artisan Co-Op a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Just one of the benefits of being a member of the MoFACo store will be having direct access to the Main St. tourist scene. Please fill out this application for us to review.

Application Approval Process

Applications will be accepted 1st - 15th of each month. (Any applications submitted after the 15th will be added to the next month.) 

The application will be reviewed by the Modern Farm and Artisan Co-op Advisory Board and the Executive Director at their monthly board meeting.

Applicants will be notified between the 20th - 23rd of the month via e-mail if they were approved or denied. If approved, instructions for inventory drop and payments will be sent.

The first inventory drop will be on the first Monday of the following month after acceptance. i.e. if you apply in April before the 15th, you will get approval by the 23rd, and so the inventory drop will be the first Monday in May.

NO applications will be approved during the months of November and December due to the holidays. 

All membership prices and benefits are subject to change at any time.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

We are only interested in products that you make and produce. Resale is not accepted.

You can only choose one type of product to sell per application. For instance, if you are a jewelry maker and you also want to sell baked goods you must fill out a separate application for each type and will pay a fee for both types. 

In addition, you cannot apply to sell one product and then bring in a different type of product to sell. For example, if you are a jewelry maker and get approved but you want to also sell pottery, you must also apply for the pottery products. If you want additional space to sell both types of products then you will pay for the additional space or you may sell both types of products in the space allotted if approved.
