I live in Pittsburgh and have a co op about 15 mins by bus from me! I love it, I usually get a ride with a friend, but, they have a ton of bulk items! I like to get bulk black beans, chickpeas, wheat gluten, brown rice and tvp!

and it usually all costs about 40$ and I am talking pounds and pounds of food!

I just did a search and found that the closest one to me is a good 50 miles away. I am looking forward to the Farmer's Markets this summer though.

I think the farmer Markets are a seeing a revival and really glad about this. As for the Co-Ops those are less known here and when I looked this up was surprised that two in Ohio were in my town, and really surprised, but the farmer market will be starting soon, and will have to do more checking this out.

Co-op stores are great. I've shopped at one for over 25 yrs. and they have always been a great place to find new and unique items that you may not find anywhere else. There usually are people there who try things for health and can educate you about their experiences before you do it yourself.

These are great if you live close enough to take advantage of them.

Hi All! I'm new to the team but so ready to learn about this lifestyle! I was wondering what everyone's opinions were of local co-op grocery stores? I typically shop at Trader Joes and/or Whole foods but have found a co-op in the area. I havent actually *been* to the store yet but from the looks of their website they carry a lot of the same things and focus on local/organic products. It is $5 a year to join, yes I said YEAR and shopping is 5% off every Thurs/Fri for members and they have once every few months 10% days.
