Natural foods grocery and deli

Grocery/Bakery/Deli, General Store

This is a co-operative natural foods grocery store with an in-store deli. According to their website, this store "offers nearly 9000 products to serve your hunger, health, and more. Offering a daily hot bar, salad bar, full deli case, and a cozy seating area, makes the South Store a destination for an afternoon lunch. Too busy to sit down? We have a wide selection of grab and go sandwiches, sushi boxes, wraps, and desserts too!"

If you live in Corvallis, or the surrounding area, the co-op is definitely the best place to grocery shop and their produce is some of the best I've seen a store anywhere. The majority of it is farmer-direct and insanely fresh and tasty.

I wish I could say the same for their hot bar and packaged food selection. Though they have a few vegan selections that are quite tasty(a tempeh salad and a thai noodle salad) there is never any guarentee they'll be available. Many times I've gone in there and found there was not a single vegan selection available. I find this very frustrating, and completely senseless, given the population that they serve and the ingredients that are available to them. There is no reason that they should not be able to commit to at least a few good vegan selections in each main food category(entree, hot bar, salad, dessert, etc) for each day.

If you're not a vegan, I'm sure I'd probably be pretty happy with their cold selection, though I'd still stay away from the hot bar, unless you get there within a half-hour of them putting it out.
