Just Food Co-op prides itself in its beautiful selection of fresh produce. We label all produce with its origin, so you always know where your fruits and vegetables are coming from. But our labels tell you even more—green means organically grown, purple means locally grown, and yellow means conventionally grown. And if you need help identifying a veggie or would like some cooking suggestions, don’t hesitate to talk to one of our knowledgeable and friendly produce staff members.
So whether you want local apples or organic avocados, you’ll find all of your favorites in our produce department!
Stop in for a delicious meal from our Grab & Go Deli at lunchtime. Monday through Friday you’ll find a hot entree available at our hot bar from 11-2 , or grab a cup of hot soup any day of the week. And if you’re in the mood for something cold, we have sandwiches, salads and sushi available in the deli cooler. Our salad bar is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Our deli can also create party platters for your celebration, family gathering, or work party. Contact the deli department (507.650.0106) for ideas and pricing.
You’ll find a lot of wonderful products in our bulk department, including coffee, spices, teas, beans, grains, snacks, seeds, nuts, mixes, flours and sugars. And because we buy these products in large quantities, bulk products are often cheaper than their packaged counterparts. Even better, you can purchase as much or as little as you need!
Shopping in Just Food Co-op’s bulk department is easy. Simply fill your bag, write down the PLU number (located on the front of the bulk bin), and bring to a cashier. And if you’d rather skip the bag, feel free to bring your own bag, jar or other reusable container to fill—just make sure to weigh it empty on the scale in the produce department and write that empty weight (called the “tare”) on the container. Questions? We’re here to help—ask a Co-op staff member for assistance.
Visit our Wellness Aisle for an excellent selection of supplements, herbs, and body care products. From whole food vitamins to homeopathic remedies, our aisle is full of natural choices in personal health. Looking for something specific? Our knowledgeable staff can help you find it!
You can rest assured knowing that our dairy products are free of the hormones and antibiotics sometimes found in conventional dairy. You’ll find grass-fed milk from our friends at Cedar Summit Farms, organic sour cream and cottage cheese from Organic Valley, multicolored eggs from Nick’s Eggs, and whole milk yogurt produced in Iowa by Cultural Revolution. You can also visit the dairy cooler for vegetarian meat and cheese substitutes, pre-made hummus and tabouli from Holy Land, and peanut butter, salsa, tortillas, lefse and more!
We strive to provide you with quality packaged products. And if you find something you really like, consider preordering it by the case and receive an additional 5% off (or 10% if you are a Just Food Co-op member)—ask a cashier for details. If you don’t find what you are looking for, just ask—we’re here to help! And if you have any suggestions, please fill out a customer comment card at the front of the store.
Sometimes, you just need something quick. When you shop in the frozen department at Just Food Co-op, you know that you won’t find any artificial colors or preservatives in your food. Check out our selection of frozen pizzas (including locally-produced pizzas), local and organic frozen fruits and veggies, microwaveable meals, gluten-free breads and entrees, delicious ice creams and desserts, and more!
