"Great selection, wonderful staff, best smoothies on the planet."
"Thank goodness for the Food Co-op!"
"As far as gluten free flours go, QFC and Haggen have far more variety."

It was our first visit, we are moving into the area in a couple of months. I would walk the 4 miles there and back to shop there. Great exercise and a great shopping experience. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Great experience, we will be back.

Excellent selection of local produce. Amazing fresh deli options. My personal favorite lunch spot in Mount Vernon. Great selection of Gray Water Safe detergents.

A jar of cashew butter at the so called "food co-op" costs $16.99. The same size jar, same brand of cashew butter at the grocery outlet costs $2.99. This is not a co-op, but a grocery store. Just call it what it is! There are no discounts and if there are, then they make up for it in how much they mark up products. The discounts are there when the manufacturer gives a discount on the product to the "food co-op" so they never take even the smallest hit for the "sale." This store makes $16 million per year and not only mark up the prices, but they don't even pay their workers a living wage. Yes, the food is great and I do have dietary restrictions, however that does not make them good contributors to the community. Due to the greed that I see in what they charge for products and how little they pay their workers, I'm only giving two stars.

Best coop I've ever been too. Great variety and helpful staff. Their deli offers fresh choices for food daily. It's fast become my favorite place in Mount Vernon to get food. The coffee is a cut above the rest too.

This is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner when you're on the I-5 traveling north or south. The co-op deli makes great sandwiches and home-made soup, as well as a huge variety of killer desserts. It's become somewhat of a joke in our family, but we always seem to find some way to arrange a day out in the Skagit to include a meal at this place!

Shopping here is a longstanding family tradition. Not the hugest selection, but you can get things here that are hard to find elsewhere. Highlights: the natural body/skin care section (awesome lip balm selection) and the deli. I pick up a couple sticks of the deli's baked marinated tofu almost every time I'm in, whether I'm hungry or not...and I am not even vegetarian!

This is my favorite grocery+ store ever! Some items may be cheaper elsewhere, but those places don't satisfy my conscience like The Co-op. They treat their employees and members really well, with profit sharing for all, and they work with local suppliers of all sorts: farmers, artists, craftspeople, apothecaries, soap makers, dairies, etc. The staff is beyond helpful, always friendly and have gotten to know my family over the years we have shopped there. Amazing food in the deli, and they roast their own coffee and filter their own water (used on the produce and in the deli, as well as available for purchase). And, if they don't have something you need, ask them to get it, and they will! People come from all over and say this is the best co-op around, and I agree wholeheartedly. (Oh, and now I work there, too, and it's the best work environment ever!)
