Arbor Day


Arbor Day is an national day of celebration to encourage the care and planting of trees. It started in Nebraska in 1872 and has since spread around the world, though different countries celebrate it on different days. In the United States it falls on the last Friday in April. To get involved in Arbor Day activities, see the Arbor Day Foundation website: http://www.arborday.org/

The Co-op is a vegetarian space, so please bring only vegetarian or vegan foods.

Recent happenings at the Co-op

Gluten-free brownies and mini (vegan) cheesecakes

We have some gluten-free treats from the same vegan pastry shop that supplies our fresh-baked muffins. Come sample gluten-free brownies with walnuts, gluten-free key lime raspberry mini-cheesecakes (with a chopped walnut crumb topping) and gluten-free chocolate mini-cheesecakes (with walnuts). The “cheese” is non-dairy. These treats are all vegan.

Now carrying local, organic, vegan pastries

The Co-op is now carrying locally made, organic, vegan pastries! Revel in tasty delights like cranberry orange crumble, baby apple pie, banana chocolate chip loaf, or blueberry lemon loaf. These fresh-baked treats are completely free of dairy, eggs, cholesterol, trans-fats, hydrogenated oils, or high fructose corn syrup, but the flavor is so good you’ll never think you’re missing out!

Live Triclosan-free!

The Co-op is doing its part to help rid the world of triclosan! We’re offering a 10% discount on triclosan-free products to anyone who trades in a product containing triclosan.
