Bulk – Our Bulk Department is filled with a wide variety of spices, freshly-ground nut butters, locally milled organic flours, beans, grains, snacks, and baking supplies, as well as fair trade, organic, local coffees and teas.

When buying in bulk, you’re welcome to use our provided bags or containers, or you can bring your own. If you’re using your own container, be sure to weigh your empty container at the registers prior to filling up so your cashier can deduct the weight when ringing up.

Foods sold in bulk are typically less expensive than their packaged counterparts. Bulk allows you to buy as much, or as little, as you need. By using and reusing your containers, you also reduce the amount of trash going into our environment.

Wine & Beer

The Durham Co-op Market carries wine and beer from thoughtful producers who place value and quality above quantity and prestige. You can find a wide range of beer and wine, from quality and affordable selections to specialty items for any occasion.
