The Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op opened a second location in downtown Roanoke on May 10, one week ago today. I dropped in today to have a look around and take some pictures.
As you’ll see in the photo slideshow below*, they’ve packed a lot of good stuff into this location, but it doesn’t look cluttered at all. You can go in for bulk ingredients, grind-your-own coffee or peanut butter, snacks, cold drinks, ice cream, produce, cleaning supplies, and a lot more. The grab-and-go food section offers sandwiches, soup, salads and the like prepared at the Grandin Village location, which houses a deli.
I picked up a tube of quinoa polenta, two avocados to make some guacamole this weekend, and some rice crackers to snack on.
If you’ve been to the new co-op location or if you go soon, let me know what you thought of the selection, prices and such.
