Organic produce and natural food

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, Grocery/Bakery/Deli

The East End Food Co-Op is your standard natural food co-op, where you can find organic produce, a large bulk section, vegan packaged foods, and cruelty-free cosmetics/supplements that are harder to find at the supermarket.

You do not have to be a member to shop at the co-op, although members do get a 2% discount off the shelf price, and get a vote in all co-op elections. Memberships are $100 per household, and can be sold back to the co-op if you leave the city.

Members can volunteer at the co-op and earn discounts on purchases based on the number of hours worked.

You can also order food by the case at the co-op and receive a discount.

Inside the co-op, besides groceries, there is a small vegetarian cafe with a juice and smoothie bar, as well as a hot and cold food bar. There is a weekend brunch, as well.

Toward the back of the market is an all veg buffet style area. The food here is very hardy and incredibly fresh. They always have soup! There is seating near the entrance of the market.

The CO-OP itself is just a great place for vegans and vegetarians alike. My husband and I have been members now for about 6-7 years. Their cafe has a great salad bar and weekend brunch. I LOVE the wheat-free pancakes! As far as their daily entrees go, some I have loved, some I thought were so-so.
