The Food Coop is GREAT. They have tons of local produce and local products. Almost all of their breads come from local bakeries. They have terrific prices on yogurt and bulk goods. They have an incredible selection of spices in bulk. Their canned goods can be more expensive than at Whole Foods, but that's because they're a small store. The hot bar and salad bar are FANTASTIC! The soups are delicious. The baked tofu is the best tofu I've ever had. The hot/salad bar can be fairly inexpensive, but watch out if you put a lot of dal on your plate, etc -- that can add up quickly. The people at the Coop are incredibly friendly and most are quite knowledgeable too. It's a great local store.
