Keeping it Local

We define local as being produced within San Juan County. Local products account for around 15% of our total purchases currently. In fruits and vegetables alone, we have purchased over $200,000 directly from over twenty produce farmers on five different islands since opening in 2014.

Why local food? It's better for the earth (low transport impact), better for the economy (more jobs here in the islands), more nutritious (less travel equals more nutrients), and it just tastes better.

We look forward to continuing to working with our customers and producers to grow our local impact. Thanks for being a part of it!

Co-op Owners Support Local- We buy more island food than any business in the county

 

 We are celebrating summer with our month-long Co-op Ownership Drive "Join in July". All month long we will be celebrating our existing and new Co-op Owners through a variety of Co-op gifts. We can't wait to share all the fantastic benefits to yourself and your community when you become a Co-op Owner!

New Owners:

All new Co-op Owners who invest during the month of July will receive their choice of a "Orcas Food Co-op makes my heart beet" Klean Kanteen water bottle or a "Community Grown, Community Owned" Co-op insulated thermos. 

New Owners who choose to make their full $240 investment all at once will also receive a rocking insulated "Change the world, eat local" insulated grocery bag filled with Co-op samples and goodies from our favorite vendors near and far. 

Existing Owners:

We couldn't have made it this far without you! To show our appreciation for the first 3 years, we have a variety of gifts we will be giving to the first 500 Owners who shop each week. Check bag here at this blog, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out what the sweet swag we have in store!
