Essential Groceries for veg'ns

Posted on 10 / 23 / 2009

We are big co-op fans here. They overcharge for ordinary grocery store items and they're not perfect, but where else in town can you find *selections* of things like tempeh, Soygurt, nut milks, vegan coconut-milk-based ice cream (soooo much better than the soy & rice ice creams) etc. etc? It would be much harder for me to cook veg at home without the Co-op. The Co-op is and feels like a community-based business; it's much more comfortable than the big supermarkets.

The bulk section is also really nice. They have a thorough selection of herbs, spices, and teas, including items that are not sold at the International Store.

There are some minor drawbacks - the meat counter at the back reeks (but I'm sensitive to the smell of raw meat), and the deli has just a few mediocre veg selections (do they taste what they sell?) However, the positives far outweigh the negatives.

Pros: Wide selection of veg'n foods, Thorough bulk-food section, Community atmosphere
Cons: High prices on many (not all) items, Stinky meat counter in the back, Veg deli food is mediocre

Huge selection

This place is big for a health food store - the size of a regular supermarket. Yeah, some things are a bit pricey, but generally with this type of food that's what you get. In comparison to Whole Foods, they're a little bit cheaper, and it's nice that you can find a whole variety of health foods you can't get elsewhere. They carry some "regular" foods too (like Oreos).

Pros: variety, staff is friendly

Fun to look around

The Davis Co-op is a staple in the Davis community. The atmosphere is fun and down-to-earth. The premade deli items are delicious (tofu salads, lasagna, etc) and I'd recommend it for a picnic or to-go lunch. There is a nice selection of specialty items but overall it's a bit too pricey to do a majority of grocery shopping.

Pros: yummy food, lots of veg options, fun looking around
Cons: expensive
