Welcome to the Co-op!

A place for people who value healthy food, a healthy planet, and cooperation. — Our vision statement

The George Street Co-op is a non-profit natural foods store owned and run by its members.  We sell vegetarian foods with the greatest nutritional value possible, and only minimal processing or additives.  Everyone is welcome to shop at the Co-op and choose from our excellent selection of fresh organic produce, bulk foods, vitamins & herbs, body care and earth-friendly products, gifts, and more.

Upcoming events — get involved!

Organic Open Mic at the Café!


A beautiful open mic at the George Street Co-op Café, every Thursday. Signups start at 7:45pm, performances start at 8:00pm. There’s no cover, and all types of performers are welcome! For more information, join our Facebook group.

Outreach Committee Meeting


The Outreach Committee meets in the Co-op Café at noon on the first and third (and sometimes fifth) Saturday of each month. Discussion focuses on planning social, educational, and recreational community events, along with spreading the good word about the Co-op. All Co-op members are welcome to attend!

The Pretty Okay comedy show


A free comedy show whose performers are way better than its modest name indicates! Please RSVP to the Facebook event here.

Membership Committee meeting


The Membership Committee meets in the Co-op Café at 6pm on the fourth Monday of each month. All Co-op members are welcome to attend.

Board Game Tuesday at the Café!


All ages are welcome! Tuesdays from 5:30pm–9pm, come out and join everyone in a game of chess, checkers, backgammon, Scrabble, or Uno — or bring a different game with you to play! Join the Meetup group here.

The Positive Potluck — Winter Edition


A peaceful and positive potluck gathering of friends. The potluck tradition is that everyone brings a little something, and together we’ll have a great and varied feast!

The Co-op is a vegetarian space, so please bring only vegetarian or vegan foods. RSVP to the Facebook event here.

CLOSED for Christmas!


The Co-op will be closed in observance of Christmas.

Open Bluegrass Jam at the Café!


Bring your mandolin, fiddle, guitar, banjo, dobro, or acoustic bass for a bluegrass jam session at the George Street Co-op! Pickers of all skill levels are welcome. This is an opportunity to show off your well-honed bluegrass chops or to learn a bit about a unique and exciting genre of music. Players and audience are all welcome.

Additionally, all seven Board of Director appointments were ratified by membership vote.

VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
