Dinner at the Co-op
Julie and I were taking stock photos the other day at the People’s Food Co-op in Kerrytown. This place is ideal for our organic and local investigation. They sell all kinds of organic items—everything from produce to dish soap. They have a nice local food selection as well, the most variety you will see of any grocery store around town. I was also amazed at their bulk food selection and their giant selection of organic herbs (yessss…I love herbs)
I decided to eat dinner there at their food bar. They have a hot food bar there everyday, and brunch on Sundays from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M. On this particular night, they were serving macaroni and cheese, free-range and hormone-free BBQ chicken, all kinds of vegetables, tofu, lentils, and soup. Everything I had was delicious! Some of the food definitely tasted different from what I was used to, like the mac and cheese, but it was a good kind of different. The price was pretty decent, too—for this plate I paid almost $7.
I also gave in to my sweet tooth and tried their locally made organic white chocolate (in the bulk food section) as well—and it was the best white chocolate I have ever eaten. No preservatives or anything! The chocolate alone is worth coming back for, but I’ll definitely be back for their other organic items as well!
The People’s Food Co-op was founded on a vision to reconnect people to local food sources by managing the store cooperatively. This means that members who pay a certain amount can add input regarding the co-ops decisions. Click here for more info about the People's Food Co-op!
