Bulk Foods: Save Money and Reduce Waste!

Bulk departments have been the cornerstone of food co-ops from the beginning, and we're sure proud of ours. We're stocked with lots of local, fairly traded, organic, gluten-free, and raw options, and that's just the start.

  • Dry goods like beans, grains, flours, nuts, and granolas
  • Herbs, spices, coffees, and teas, familiar and unusual
  • Liquids like oils, honey, vanilla extract, Bragg's Liquid Aminos, and more
  • Ingredients for Western and international diets
  • Staple foods, baking ingredients, snacks, and treats
  • Curious about a bulk item? Ask us for a sample!

Because we're stocking in bulk, we can cut back on packaging and on some of the cost and labor, passing those savings on to you. 

Owners, if you buy one of the large bags we stock on the bottom of the bulk table, we're able to give you a 10% discount on top of the already-low bulk price. Sweet deal!
