The Wedge is an absolutely wonderful resource for organic food, top-notch quality produce, free-range meats, and an amazing selection of cheese. For all you amateur chefs who believe in making everything from scratch, check out The Wedge Co-op to get the ingredients for your next masterpiece.
You do not have to be a member to shop there, but membership does have its benefits. For instance, the more you spend as a member, the larger the dividend you can receive at the end of the year. Also, you can qualify for all kinds of coupons and discounts. I would recommend joining only if you plan on committing to making The Wedge your primary grocery store, as the prices are a bit steep(but worth it).
To sum it up:
Do expect to find fresh salads and pre-prepared entrées in the deli. Do not expect to find overly processed, cheap food.
Do expect to find eco-friendly cleaning products. Do not expect to find Dawn or Tide on the shelves; as I'm pretty sure they only carry the safe stuff. The same goes for any other basic cleaning supply.
Do expect to be tempted by all the fresh bakery goods. Do not expect perfection out of the vegan selections, however.
Do expect friendly service at the deli counter and checkout lane. Do not expect them to question you if you borrow your friend's member number and use one of their coupons!
What can I say? I love The Wedge and everything that they stand for; sustainable farming, social justice, and high quality food. If those values are important to you, then check out this happy little co-op.
