Our co-op rocks

5 Posted on 03 / 11 / 2010

The co-op is a wonderful source for most of your food basics - it sells almost all dry goods in bulk: flours (of all kinds), grains (rice, barley, millet, quinoa, polenta, etc), nuts, seeds, cereals, spices, dried fruit, oils, ,sauces, miso, maple syrup, etc... Plus it has a good range of fresh local fruit & veggies, tempeh, organic butter, cheeses and goats milk in the fridge and little extras like baked goods and Cocolo fair trade, organic chocolate.

They also make sure that the food is ethically sources - low packaging, organic, local, rain-fed rice, etc...

The prices are very reasonable (since it is not-for-profit) and as a working member you get a 20% discount, which is pretty significant.

It is a lovely place to shop. There's a kid's corner with toys, somewhere to sit and have a coffee, and friendly volunteers behind the counter. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Pros: high quality, ethical, good value
Cons: smaller range than supermarket

Great alternative

My hometown has a huge cooperative grocery that is my first stop for shopping. The Cooperative Food Shop (aka ANU Co-op) is too small to provide everything, but is still a go-to for certain bulk and obscure items, like bulk oils and vinegars, fairtrade products, etc.. I go for delicious brown rice, beans, teas and tonic herbs, nuts, Colombian panela sugar and chocolate, and tempeh. If you become a member you receive up to 20% discount on purchases, but you don't have to be a member to shop. You can also bring your own containers, and weight them before so you don't get charged. In addition to food stuffs, they also have a small selection of prepared foods, and eco-friendly body care and home care products, both packaged and bulk (like shampoo, conditioner, dish liquid).

Closed Monday for inventory and restocking. Their hours change seasonally, so check their website to be sure.
