Co-op Basics

The Co-op’s Eat Local Challenge gets underway on September 1st.  If you think eating local has to break your budget – think again!  At the Co-op, over a third of the products that we house are produced by Vermont-owned businesses.  Because we buy direct from so many of these folks, and because we purposely budget for a lower profit margin on Vermont products, we already pass on very competitive prices on most Local products. And, all through our September Eat Local Challenge, EVERY Weekly Sale, and EVERY Member Deal features exclusively Vermont products.  But, you don’t have to wait until September to get exceptionally great deals on Vermont products – just look for the purple Co-op Basics signs!  You’ll find everyday low prices on staples like Monument Farms Milk Gallons,  Cabot Creamery Cheddar Blocks and Butter, Champlain Orchards Macintosh and Empire Apple Totes, Seventh Generation Diapers and Laundry Detergent, and the list goes on…  Join this year’s Co-op Eat Local Challenge and be a part of a vibrant local economy and an affordably healthy lifestyle!

Check out our Co-op Basics Flyer to see a sampling of our Everyday Low Prices!

Remember to SPECIAL ORDER these products by the case to receive an additional 15% off!
