Local and Organic foods - including prepared foods with many vegetarian and vegan options.

Restaurant, Grocery/Bakery/Deli

Take home some of the bounty of local and organic foods. You'll never have to wonder what is in your food, where it came from, or how it was produced.

And—unique, we think, to co-ops—even the prepared foods in Café Max are made completely from scratch using the high-quality local and organic ingredients for sale on the nearby shelves.

Come in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner prepared by Chef Maureen and her talented staff; pick up prepared foods for sharing at home or at work; drink our wonderful Zen coffee; buy our local and organic/fair trade products, including produce; stock up on bulk foods.

Or come to the Market on Wednesdays from 5:00 – 7:00 pm or Saturdays 9:00 am - 1:00 pm and meet the producers. You can order in advance using the link to the right.

Whatever your reasons for seeking a co-op—just looking for good food; concerned about fair treatment of producers, animals, the earth, and workers; preferring organic food for health; passionate for economic and food justice; seeking a community and welcoming space—we have it in our pleasant new store.

*We define "Local" as being grown or produced within 60 miles of South Bend - what is typically known as "Michiana"
