Everyone can shop, but we would love for you to join!

Local Food Month

The month of September is Humboldt Local Food Month. It’s always a favorite time of year at the Co-op and we’d love you to join us in celebrating the abundance of our local food system.

Eat Local Challenge

The Eat Local Challenge is a small way to give back to our local farmers who continue to expand the selection of vegetables, herbs and fruits available to all of us. When you pledge to eat local, you are making a commitment to supporting local producers through the meals you prepare and eat. Pick your level and sign up for the Eat Local Challenge at the Customer Service Desk at either Co-op store starting in late August.
