This way of shopping can help you eat well on a budget. Need just a pinch of parsley, a handful of quinoa for a special recipe or want to experiment with that gluten-free flour? No need to break the bank: Bulk allows you to buy as much, or as little, as you need. You can try new things and keep perishable purchases fresh by buying in smaller amounts.

How to Buy Bulk – Reduce packaging and buy only the amount you need by buying in bulk. Here’s how:

  • Use one of our bags (free) or deli cups (25¢) or bring your own container to the registers to be weighed.
  • Fill your container with product. (One product per container, please.)
  • Record the PLU number from the product dispenser on your twist tie or on the container itself.

The cashier will deduct the empty container weight when ringing up the product.

Our seafood is from sustainably managed fisheries and fish farms.

Wine and Beer

A good bottle of wine should be a product of responsible agriculture and artisanal skill. It should also be a good value and a wholesome pleasure to drink. It should NOT be the result of corporate marketing teams pushing crassly manufactured wine-flavored booze-juice.
