Food Co-ops to the rescue!

Food Co-op

A cooperative place where your membership makes you part owner of the very same grocery store you shop in. As a part owner with other members of your community, the Co-op market has the purview to maintain the lowest possible prices while obtaining the very best organic, locally produced and sustainable ingredients.

This is actually a wonderful article from MSNBC.com, where they provide a list of links to websites to help you locate the nearest co-op markets near you!

Happy, healthy and cost-effective shopping everyone!
