Veg-friendly food co-op on Alberta
The purpose of Alberta Cooperative Grocery is to provide high quality, healthy, affordable food and produce obtained primarily from local, organic and socially responsible sources. Good selection of local organic produce and baked goods, as well as the typical health food store selection of bulk items, medicinals, and general foods. Alberta Co-op functions as a neighborhood community resource, serving diverse members of North/Northeast Portland. Alberta Co-op is a member owned cooperative, though anyone is welcome to shop at the store. Members can get involved at the co-op by volunteering as working members and receiving a discount for their help at the co-op.

The selection of food is a bit limited in some area's like breads and soy milk, but what they do have is always excellent and fresh. The people are friendly and helpful and the bulk food is excellent.. The Veg Jerky is to die for.. Both the mild and spicy..
The Alberta neighborhood has been going through a lot of changes lately and more and more people are discovering it's charm. If you've never experienced 'Last Thursday' on Alberta street you OWE it to yourself to experience it. The Alberta Co-op Grocery is smack dab in the middle of it all on Alberta street. It's located between The Tin Shed restaurant and Everyday Wine (two very notable Alberta Street stops). What the Alberta Co-op Grocery lacks in size it makes up for in quality and friendliness. The produce is fresh and well kept, there are great choices in the dairy case (including some great cheeses) and beverage and snack choices are plentiful. Their prices are fairly reasonable and often lower than Whole Foods (aka Whole Paycheck) or New Season.
Above all the Alberta Co-op Grocery is a great place to shop. I've been in the store many a time and the people who work there have always gone out of their way to be friendly and helpful (even on nights when they are crowded). Since Everyday Wine up the street doesn't serve food, and lets you bring your own eats in Alberta Co-op Grocery is an essential resource for nibbles if you're headed up the street to Everyday Wine.
