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.
