Northampton's own locally grown food co-op! We specialize in fresh, local, and organically grown foods.
The co-op is owned by its customers; therefore we stock the foods customers want to buy instead of the foods the manufacturers want to sell. The moderate store size makes it more shopper friendly and the local ownership gives it a local personality which makes grocery shopping fun!
Our 15,000 sq. foot green-constructed building has ample parking; a deli seating area; fresh produce, fresh meat and seafood departments; a wellness department; Quarry Cafe & Bakery, beer and wine; bulk foods; cheese, dairy, grocery and more!
Our Fresh Produce Department features the area's best selection of fresh, local and organic produce. We are proud of our partnerships with many local farmers, and the abundance of their products here in peak season is a testimonial to our shoppers' commitment to supporting local agriculture.
We have 165 solar panels on our roof and a computer display by our customer service desk where you can see how much electricity we are receiving from the sun. We also collect rain water to water our landscaping.
