Your Co-op proudly offers the largest selection of fresh organic produce on the Iron Range!
Our produce team works diligently to bring in the certified organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs you need to make delicious, nutritious, and visually enticing meals.
In addition to certified organic options, we also focus on offering a variety of locally grown vegetables from farmers we know and trust. Though the local produce may not be labeled as certified organic, you can trust these local options were grown using organic practices. This is because all the local farmers we work with at the Co-op are openly committed to using organic growing practices on their farmlands.
Being this is northern Minnesota you will start to see local produce on the shelves mid-summer through the fall harvest season. Watch for the local indicators listed on our product signage and check out our featured local farmers on the signage above the produce coolers.

How It Works
1. Grab a container or bring your own
1a. If you bring your own container, weigh it while empty and write down its weight
1b. The container’s weight will be subtracted from the product at the register
2. Fill the container with the product of your choice
3. Write down the product PLU number and secure it to your container
4. A cashier will use the PLU number to ring up the item at the register
If you need assistance, please ask a staff member for help, we are always delighted to introduce shoppers to the wonderful world of bulk!
