I love shopping here. Before we moved here, we came on work/vacation and had been told about the co-op. We visited right away. Now we live here and though we don't live in Corvallis, this is a regular, at least twice monthly shopping trip for us. Our family has lots of allergies and health issues, so we can find lots of food alternatives here that we cannot get in regular grocery stores. There are also things we specically eat organically, so again, we can find it here. I love that it is not perfumy (usually)-and that the people who work and shop there are aware of the harmful effects of perfume, so us asthmatics can 99% of the time shop there safely. It is expensive to shop there, but if it's truly needed in your diet, then you learn to cut in other areas. I just wish we had a coop in Lebanon, where I live.
