We aim to provide our community with fresh, delicious, healthy, high-quality, real food.
This means stocking our shelves with as much organic, non-GMO, and minimally processed food as possible. We even have a Buying Committee that meets regularly to review all proposed new products and vet our existing offerings. Moreover, our Produce Department is 100% organic!
By shopping at our Co-op, you help support our thriving local food system. We prioritize supporting local farmers, growers, ranchers and producers through our True Local program.
We also have a large variety of specialty foods for diets of all kinds. Looking for something you don’t see on the shelf? Ask our Customer Service team and we may be able to make a special order for you.
Sleep well knowing that money spent at our Co-op stays in our community.
In years that we profit, we re-invest this into our staff, our suppliers, our community organizations, and in lower prices for our Member–Owners.
As a Member-Owner, you support our community through our Community Outreach Program, which donates over $145,000 a year through donations, grants, scholarships, sponsorships of community events, and of course, food!
