Best Co-Op

I used to love coming down here when I lived down here, and I still love to visit. Great vegan items for cooking, snacking, quick eats, and self-care. It’s not the biggest place, but you’ll most likely find what you need.

Pros: All vegan, Great staff , Always find something new

Apparently all-vegetarian co-op from yesteryear.

Glut- Thanks for banning meat, fish and fowl all these years (I think) and for remaining a throwback to the food co-ops of yesteryear. Thanks for doing your share in keeping Mt. Rainier positively unique.

Pros: All-vegetarian (I think), Nice people, A great community fixture .

In LOVE With This Place...

As always when I come to D.C., I have to look for some place to get everything I need. When visiting a friend, he told me about this place & oh my goodness. I found everything I needed & then some plus took some things back to Charlotte with me. This will definitely be my staple when visiting D.C. again. ♡♡♡♡♡


Cons: Wished I lived in the D.C. area. :-(

It's a lifesaver

In a city like DC where many people are transient, GLUT has the right idea. It's structured as any traditional co-op. There's a huge bulk selection - dry and liquid, as well as a great selection of dried fresh fruits. They've got local milk and cheese, which is hard to find in DC. Basically it's all the amenities a conscious eater could ever want, but they recognize that you may bot be here forever and don't charge membership fees. The prices aren't just reasonable for a specialty market, they're also just good for DC in general. Not much parking so ride your bike or take the G8 up Rhode Island.

Pros: Bulk section, well-stocked, Fair prices

Cons: Out of the city

Save a ton of money

This place is awesome. You have to put a little effort into shopping here, bagging things and finding containers at home for items you're used to getting packaged, but you'll save a ton of money (plus it's environmentally friendly).

I come here once in a while to stock up on pantry items like dried beans, whole wheat pastry flour, vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, nuts, dried fruit, herbs and spices. I'm always stunned by how low my bill is. It's pretty easy to get to with public transportation, metro to rhode island ave and then a short bus ride. If I lived closer I'd come here way more often for things like the fresh local, bulk organic tofu and the insanely good vegan ice cream made at a shop on the same street.

So, shop here! Everyone is really friendly, too - even the other shoppers will smile and greet you.

Pros: bulk items, fresh local tofu, super friendly

Cons: location
