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!

The Positive Potluck


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.

Board Game Tuesday at the Café!


All ages are welcome! Tuesdays from 6pm–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.

Personnel Committee meeting


The Personnel Committee meets in the Co-op upstairs at 7:00pm on the fourth Wednesday of each month. All Co-op members are welcome to attend.

Food Day


Food Day, October 24 was created in 1975 by the Center for Science in the Public Interest to raise awareness about the increasing industrialization of American agriculture, rising food prices, hunger, and the American diet and health crisis.

Fresh Produce open mic


A beautiful open mic at the George Street Co-op Café, every Thursday. Signups start at 7:45pm, performances start at 8:00pm. Everyone gets 8 minutes and it’s absolutely free.

Snack Attack Comedy Show


Part gut-busting laughs, part gut-filling snacks, this show will leave you fully satisfied. The hosts will serve up hilarious comedians while simultaneously making a snack from scratch, and you will decide the winner. This month, the hosts will each make a snack featuring chocolate chips.
