Co-ops

Co-ops

I don't know how many of you have a food co-op anywhere near you, but I just joined the one near where I work. It's heavily organic/vegan/etc., so they do carry a lot of hard-to-find stuff, but the prices, my god.... Here's a couple examples: An 8-ounce cup of Brown Cow Organic Cream-Top Yogurt is $1.17 down at the Bayview Thriftway. At the Olympia Food Co-Op, for nonmembers it's $0.65. As a member, I get a 10% discount, so my price is $0.58. A one-ounce bottle of HerbPharm liquid herbal tincture (Echinacea/Goldenseal Compound) is $9.60 downtown at Radiance. The Co-Op carries it for $8.40 nonmembers, 10% discount for members. Bloody hellfire. They carry EXTENSIVE bulk foods (oils, vinegars, flours, dried fruits, nuts, pastas, nut butters, granolas, and six separate sugar substitutes) and thus far are the ONLY place around here that I've seen pastry flour. Their fees are nominal ($5 joining fee, $6 annual dues or so) and they will waive even those fees for low-income memberships.
