As different as each person is in the Treasure Valley, the Boise Co-op has just as many options for shoppers.
The Co-ops large selection is also high on quality, with many locally grown products that include pesticide- or chemical-free produce and meat and dairy from the areas grass-fed and free-range farms.
If you are a vegetarian, a vegan, a foodie, eat more meat than a T. rex, or are happy with any meal in front of you, the Co-op has something for your taste. The shelves are stocked with an incredible amount of variety for cooking a delicious, healthy meal at home, or if youre looking for a quick bite, be sure to check out the deli. There is even a patio outside for hanging out.
Even with so much fresh variety, the Co-ops prices are affordable. It offers a membership for a one-time $65 fee that provides discounts and a points system to earn money back, but membership is not required to shop at the store. The Co-op also features a wine shop across the parking lot, and theres a pet shop in the works next door, so the four-legged family members can eat well, too.
