The Co-op Thymes is the newspaper of First Alternative Co-op. Published on the 1st of each month, it is a free publication that is mailed to our owners and distributed in the stores and at other locations in Corvallis. Circulation is approximately 5000.

In addition to reports from the Board of Directors, GM and Store Managers, the Thymes is packed with important information about local food, nutrition information, and delicious recipes. You can find details on the latest natural foods, read about our Community Outreach projects, and get to know the Co-op staff better through the Staff Spotlight. At the center of it all are the Specials pages, packed with our monthly sales, recipes, and interesting tidbits about our products.
