Your co-op is stocked with local tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower, and broccoli. Add some celery for an easy, and healthy snack. Even better than making your own, check out our selection of fresh veggie and olive trays in the grab-n-go section!

Score big by busting our the beer. Spicy foods like salsa and Buffalo wings go great with pale ales and IPAs. Grilling? Go with something heavier, like a Belgian-style Siason.
