I love the co-op. Yes, you can get the same foods for less at Wegmans or Tops, but money spent at the co-op is money that will stay in Buffalo and support local businesses and farmers. I don't mind paying more for a good cause. They have great sales and coupons, too. You just have to keep an eye out. The produce section is small, but they have a good variety for the size. The other sections - especially the bulk foods - are fantastic. All those obscure ingredients in exotic vegan recipes that you've never heard of before? You can find them here. The hot bar usually has a vegan selection, and the prepared foods and bakery have many vegan choices. (You can get a calendar in the hot bar that will list the foods available on certain days.) I just love this place. I go there all the time.

Pros: Selection, Prepared foods, Good cause

This coop infuriates me daily. They frequently have little to no vegan options at the hot bar. They charge you more for vegan baked goods. They have a poor selection of organic produce. Everything is priced significantly higher than elsewhere like Wegmans or other stores. It is overpriced for a coop, and extremely overpriced for the Buffalo market. The staff are either really terrific or completely miserable. It's a shame that it is one of the only options in the city, but eventually some chain store will move in and drive them out of business.

Pros: location, open hours
Cons: few organic selections, prices, prepared food selection

I have to say, Lexington Coop is absolutely fantastic. The prices are reasonable, the benefits of becoming a member-owner are great, the store is clean, the employees are so friendly. If you need something they don't have they do special ordering, they have a huge selection of vegan and vegetarian options, as well as local and organic produce. It's the only place we shop at!

Pros: Wonderful Selection, Clean, friendly atmosphere, Involved in the local community
Cons: Can't think of a single one.

I've shopped at Lexington Co-op

The Co-op is recently updated and looking good. They often have the best sale prices on veg'n food in the area and they have great local and organic produce. The co-op also has a hot foods/salad bar that typically features at least two vegan dishes and several more vegetarian dishes. Their prepared foods tend to be a little bland and sometimes the presentation isn't so great though. Also it looks like they recently added some outdoor seating, so that's a nice plus for the summer weather if people are buying foods off the hot bar.

Pros: Hot food bar, Bathrooms
Cons: Hard to turn left out of, the parking lot

This place has a great vibe and is reasonably priced - though I haven't been in 14-15 years. (crikey! i'm old and i'm just turning 22 next month). My friends in b-lo always have positive things to say about this place.
