JojaMart is a mart owned by the MegaCorp "Joja Corporation". Its pristine clean walls and cold, uninviting atmosphere serves to remind the player why they've escaped to the country to begin with. Morris handles JojaMart PR (Public Relations), and he seems to live there as well. He offers the players an opportunity to purchase a JojaMart Membership for the sum of 5,000g.

The employees at Joja Mart seem tired and fatigued, much like the player in the game introduction. Shane seems to be particularly brought down by his work schedule, and shows an unfriendly attitude both in the Mart and at the Saloon by night (unless the player has befriended him).

Buying a Membership at JojaMart from Morris causes the Community center to be destroyed and replaced with a Joja Warehouse. The player can then buy the town refurbishments through JojaMart, rather than through completing bundles in the community center. The Joja Community Development Form allows players to do so. It should be noted that this alternate branch in gameplay encourages a very different, money-driven playstyle than the exploration one offered through improving the Community Center; rather than requiring a variety of items from different seasons to complete bundles, large sums of cash in the 15k-45k range are paid upfront for improvements. There is a greater emphasis on the growing of cash crops to progress, which can be easier for players who have a good grasp of how to earn money. Upgrading this way does not grant bonus rewards that individual bundles in the community center provide, although nothing unique is missed since all item rewards from bundles are craftable.

JojaMart offers brand products at a relatively cheap price, but sells seeds at ludicrous prices. JojaMart plays with underhanded tactics to keep up with the local competition (Pierre's General Store) like giving out discount tickets at Pierre's store and aggressive pricing (It is noted that the player never actually receives these discounts unless they have a membership). The only pricing exception is their Sunflower Seeds, which are 75g (37.5%) cheaper than Pierre's.

JojaMart's prices after the coupons expire are initially 25% higher than Pierre's, but after purchasing a membership they become equivalent, and the store remains open later. It's unclear whether this is a member discount, or because the newly built warehouse has lowered prices in some way.

It is easy to say that Joja is the rather global antagonist in Stardew Valley, as they represent everything the player is trying to escape from.

Trivia

  • If the player chooses to help the community center without paying for a JojaMart Membership, when all the bundles are completed, JojaMart will be out of business and Morris gone forever.
  • If a player were to join JojaMart before triggering the Community Center cut scene, you would break the cut scene by getting stuck in some boxes that were not previously there.
  • While most seeds are more expensive at JojaMart, Sunflower Seeds are 75g cheaper than in Pierre's General Store.
  • The reason for the box behind JojaMart (to the north-east) is unknown. There is speculation that it contains a secret statue and can be opened, but how is also unknown.
  • The Joja clerk behind the checkout counter looks very similar to Leah or Penny, but the player cannot speak with her.
