Shopping for Good Food Has Never Been Better: Nourishment for the Hungry Hiker

The Whole Foods Co-op has a fine selection of salads, sandwiches, and desserts (and much more), and its staff is friendly and helpful (for example, where to find a wine bottle opener at nearly 8:00 PM).

We checked this store for lunch and they had some excellent homemade soups along with salads you could purchase and enjoy in their small dining area.

If you've had a good cup of coffee at a restaurant in Grand Marais, chances are that you were drinking the fair trade coffee sold here (Fica). Angry Trout and Pie Place serve it, FWIW. We shopped here just to get the coffee, to take home. A very helpful staff person directed us to the bulk coffee bins and explained... More

Love the coop in Grand Marais, newly remodeled, always my first stop to get what ever I need. Their Signature Granola is the best, I always get some to bring home with me!

Two days before our scheduled vacation week in Grand Marais, the 2 adults in our travel group decided to start their Paleo Diet - no carbohydrates, no bread, no sugar! While in Grand Marais, we bought the majority of our food supply/groceries at this place. They sell special types of FLOUR made of either almonds or coconuts, maple syrup, maple... More

Nice healthy groceries! Happy to find this place in town! We purchased some healthy snacks here for our hiking trips and also ate a quick bowl of chicken chili and shared a hunk of cornbread on a cool rainy afternoon which was marvelous. Very expensive but it is a tourist town with no competition.

My daughter, who is a vegetarian, stated that the new Co - op was a lifesaver for her while on vacation. We were up the North shore for a week and came here almost every day. Prices are mid range but we were able to find fresh vegetables and food she liked. Staff were very friendly and they have a... More

We bought the best sandwich to take along on our hikes. We ended up going back every day we were there to get a picnic linch, it was great every time.

Great Co-op in Grand Marais. You will find almost anything you might need from a large Co-op in the Cities. Great people too
