Friendly staff, very good selection of wholesome foods

Their new building is very nice and well laid out. There is a good selection of grocery food items as well as hot prepared items (yummy soups). We enjoy the wild blueberry granola in the bulk food section. Prices are reasonable.

I was attending a conference and did not always have time to eat full meals. I bought many take out items from the coop--curried tofu, egg salad, milk, and other things--and it all was delicious.

They are located next door to the East Bay Suites, which makes it convenient for cooking or snacks for your suite.

A trip to Grand Marais wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Co-op. Their store made granola is the best! Since it was lunch time and they provide an eating space, we also enjoyed a bowl of delicious soup and dessert. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

We went in to look for cold medicine, it was sunday & not much else was open. There was no actual medicine, just lots of different types of snake oil in pretty bottles. Worthless for our needs.

Everything from aromatics, to produce, to home made cheese and baskets can be located here for reasonable prices. Helpful staff is to direct the shopper to a variety of items not readily located in grocery stores. It's a must-see.

I am so thankful to have this co-op in Grand Marais. I utilize the store on a weekly basis. Every item is so fresh and if you can't find it at the local grocery store you will find it here. Organic and gluten-free foods and homemade soups, sandwiches, and salads are offered daily.

For a small town - even the 'coolest small town in America', this co-op is incredible. In fact, it has a better selection more beautifully displayed than the co-ops we frequent in the Twin Cities. In addition, there is a daily selection of soups, salads sandwiches and desserts available to eat in-store or take out.

This has been our #1 choice for buying groceries when visiting the North Shore. There's a better variety of fresh produce than you will find elsewhere. Great bulk products, including trail mix for your hikes. Most importantly, the establishment has a carefully identified and curated selection of gluten free foods -- including bulk gluten free pasta that is terrific! Great... More
