Project Description

First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op Produce

First Alternative Co-op’s produce department is committed to providing you with the freshest, highest quality produce at a fair and reasonable price.

Our amazing selection of organic produce varies with each season, but you can always expect to find local options available every day. Just look for our Local 6, Local D, or Local OR labels to easily distinguish which fruits and vegetables arrived directly from local farms!

Garden Seeds

Each spring, we have garden seeds & starts available from many of the local and regional seed producers! Whether you are interested in a food garden, a flower garden, or a medicinal herb garden, we have a diverse selection of seeds for all of your fun interests!

Interested in sprouting your own seeds? We love sprouts here at the Co-op and have a cart dedicated to our sprouting enthusiasts! Whether you are just now starting your own personal sprouting station or are in need of some new seeds, we can assist you and answer any questions you may have!

Bananas Can Make a Difference!

We are proud to carry organic GROW bananas from the family-owned Organics Unlimited farm in Mexico. The farm enforces sustainable practices, pays employees a fair wage for their labor and provides a safe and pleasant work environment. As of March 2009, Organics Unlimited has donated more than $294,000 through GROW. First Alternative Co-op’s banana sales have contributed $8,300 of that amount.
