Ashland Food Co-op’s Grocery department is the foundation of the store. While we may not be the most glamorous department, we are the “food” that comes to mind when you think of grocery store.
Lynne Scionti has managed the department since 1987 when the store went from a “collective management team” to a distinct department format.
The grocery staff has many years of experience in conventional grocery stores, natural food stores, and other food co-ops. They can assist you with your questions and concerns.
One of the cornerstones of the Grocery department is bulk foods. Our bulk department was certified organic in March of 2007, and we are extremely proud of the selection and quality of our bulk products. In our cooler and frozen section we carry only rBGH free dairy products, along with a great variety of other refrigerated and frozen foods. Our packaged grocery sections are stocked with your favorite natural and organic brands in every category and we’re continually bringing in new products. Contact Grocery Manager Lynne Scionti.
Q: Do you carry raw milk?
A: The state of Oregon forbids the sale of raw milk products.
Q: Where are the sesame seeds located?
A: They are located in two jars close to the bulk liquids in the bulk department.
Q: Will you bring in my favorite new product?
A: We bring in new products on a regular basis. However, we are limited in size and many times we need to discontinue a product in order to bring in another one. We appreciate your patience and understanding and hope to be able to get that new product on the shelf. You are also welcome to special order a case of it in the meantime.
