Hello, Co-op friends and fans!
It's so nice seeing so many of you coming into the store these days as more and more folks get fully vaccinated. I encourage you to keep on coming and tell your friends and neighbors about Co-op and why they should check us out, too! We've generally got something new and interesting and old favorites, too! Remember, masks are still required indoors. Please continue to mask up and let's not quit being safe sooner than we should.

Fair Trade Month continues
Fair Trade is, simply put, a better way of doing business. Consumers have positive impact on the communities where our food comes from simply by purchasing Fair Trade items! This month we have an end cap of some of our favorite Fair Trade items including a great sale on Equal Exchange coffees, chocolates, and teas! Check out this short video that explores the issue of how Fair Trade also supports sustainability efforts world-wide. Fairtrade and Sustainability - YouTube
