The Next Step in the Evolution of Fair Trade
All are welcome at the Belfast Co-op, a community-owned health food store and deli/cafe located in scenic downtown Belfast, Maine since 1976. A member-owned and controlled retail outlet, we strive to offer a wide selection of products that are organically produced and locally-sourced, at reasonable prices, to support healthy lifestyles. Our intent is to be a resource for information and action concerning health, nutrition, and the source of our products, as well as for building community.
We stock a huge selection of "specialty" items for a variety of dietary needs, including gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan. The Co-op has a full aisle of Asian, Indian, Thai, and Mexican foods for your cooking adventures.
As part of our mission we make it a priority to support local organic and natural farmers. Our produce department reflects this commitment. We stock, in season, a large selection of local fruits and vegetables.
Our meat and cheese department carries a variety of local, artisanal and international cheeses. We have free-range and organic poultry products, organic and grass-fed beef products, as well as our own hand-crafted sausages.
Buying foods in bulk is for the economy minded, as the prices are typically better than packaged items, and you can buy exactly the amount you need. You'll find everything from beans and grains to granola and snacks. Our bulk spices and herbs are a popular draw. Buying in bulk also cuts down on unnecessary packaging, preserving precious resources.
Feel free to stop in and enjoy friendly service, good healthy food, and a wide range of Maine-made products, which support our local economy.
