The Peoples Food Co-op was founded in 1971 to promote a healthy world and closer connection to food sources by managing its economic power with community-focused, cooperative ideals. Our values are focused on the environment, community, cooperative ownership, and business honesty. The food co-op is located at 216 N. Fourth Ave, and we have a cafe located at 214 N. Fourth Ave. named Cafe Verde.
We support our local community by buying locally grown and locally produced goods when available. We feature seasonal local produce, and we support local farmers and businesses through preferential buying. We also support our environment by carrying organic items in all of our departments. The majority of our produce is organically grown, and we offer organic grocery, home and beauty care items.
Our Fabulous Food Bar has super-fresh salad ingredients and hot-out-of-the-kitchen soups, sides and entrees. We get several weekly produce deliveries and carry a variety of fruits and veggies. Cafe Verde features many desserts made in our own kitchen.
Our friendly staff can help you find the things you need. We carry many foods for special dietary needs and healthy eating, including vegetarian, vegan, fruit juice-sweetened, and wheat- and dairy-free items. Need something we don't have? Any cashier at the front of the store can help you place a special order.
Anyone can shop; anyone can join. PFC is owned by its members, who have a voice in how the co-op is run. Our cafe features a bulletin board for community events and services. You'll find information on the products we carry in our reference library. Our Outreach and Education Department provides programs and support for our community. We're so much more than a grocery store!
