It's only 2 dollars a month to join the food co-op and once you've paid into it 100 dollars you are a member forever. If you were paying ten percent more it's because you are not a member. I was born and raised here too and I'm not expecting special treatment for it. This is an excellent co-op and for people with special dietary needs it's the best place to shop in town.
This one is an organic grocery store. They have fresh soup and organic salad bar. We get only salad and soup because of the taste and quality. We like to do shopping in the other grocery more than here.
