I visited Portland last weekend and was thrilled to stumble upon this adorable little co-op. It's alive with the vibration of the neighbourhood and unlike PCC (in Seattle), it's not a Whole Foods clone. Their was staff is friendly and helped me find a few obscure things I needed.
Even though it's small, with a little help, I found everything I was looking for and more. Their mercantile section offered some unique household items that I hadn't seen before such as glass drinking straws.
I highly recommend this co-op.Pros: Friendly, Has character, Good organic selection
