The Astoria Co-op Grocery is all about building community through food. The local grocery store works with over 100 individual producers to source its unique stock of nutrient-rich foods like produce, meat, bread, pies and other goodies, and the co-op loves to show off the North Coast bounty.

Try a from-stratch soup, sandwich or salad made with organic ingredients from the grab-and-go deli.

The co-op also works with local nonprofits and charities through its Beans for Bags program, encouraging shoppers to bring reusable bags to the store.

With 42 years under its belt as a community store, the co-op is aiming to expand — one of its top projects in its five-year strategic plan.
