Members Only Sales
Sure, owning equity in a co-operative business and helping our local food systems thrive are reasons enough to purchase shares in the Davis Food Co-op. But we've just sweetened the deal a little. Look for our new Owner Extras signs throughout the store. Every month, we'll feature (at least) 20 items at 20% off (or more), for Members only. Check out the Petite Brie selection from Marin! Everyone can shop; anyone can join and enjoy more savings.
Proudly Introducing Our All-Organic Salad Bar
We're taking our commitment to sustainability to the next level. In July, we proudly became the first grocer in Davis to offer an all-organic salad bar. Stop by and check out new offerings, which include nutrient-dense chia seeds, tangy yogurt, and a crunchy granola. Grab a pre-TARE'd wide-mouth mason jar from our Bulk aisle, and create your own enviable lunch.
Organic Cherry Tomatoes, Pluots, Melons & More 
Don't miss certified organic flame grapes from Stan Barth Farm, or outrageous peaches from Good Humus and our hyper-local friends at Cloverleaf Farm. Our local partners deliver fresh flavors to us several times a week. Get on our email list for Weekly Specials every Wednesday:

Join us August 19th from 5 to 7pm, when Dogfish Head commandeers our patio! The internationally famous craft brewery from Rehoboth will pour tastes and we'll offer samples of perfect cheese pairings. FREE! 21+, flagstone patio only. Keep an eye on our Events Calendar for free classes in August, like make-ahead breakfasts, an intro to flatbreads, and a Q&A on perfect homemade energy bars.
The Latest From The Board
August 8 at 6:30pm is the next Board Meeting, and all Co-op Members are invited to attend. Read the latest entry on the Board Blog, and consider joining a task force! (Photo by Owner Holly Istas, of newly-appointed DFC Director and Secretary Sandra Schickele.)
You Could Win Two Pounds Of Fresh Sausage
We snapped a photo right before Jim added protein to these four ingredients. Guess the correct sausage flavor, and you could win! In addition to whole-animal butchery and custom meat-cutting, your Co-op crafts dozens of sausages from scratch using bold, fresh ingredients. We'll draw a winner from the correct guesses, and treat that person to 2 free lbs of their favorite kind of DFC sausage. One entry per person. Email us at
Match The Ink To The Manager
Can you tell which of our managers "pineapples" pineapple? Study our Management Team's glamour shots and send your best guess to One entry per person, please. We'll draw a winner from the correct guesses, and announce the answer in September. The mysterious Buddha tattoo featured last month? That belongs to Brad Salmon, our Finance Manager. (The most popular guess was Bija Young!) 
Obstinate Stocking, Wack Tax & Our Dark Materials
Read this month's questions, suggestions and puzzlements! We may not be able to rid the world of palm oil, but at least our Suggestion Box does not disappoint. (Photo by Produce Manager Brad Elliott. Good Humus Certified Organic Peaches!)
