All are welcome at the Belfast Co-op, a community-owned health food store and deli/cafe located in scenic downtown Belfast, Maine since 1976. The Belfast Cooperative is a member-owned and controlled retail outlet for whole natural foods and other goods and provisions. We strive to offer a wide selection of products that are organically produced and locally-sourced whenever available, at reasonable prices, to support healthy lifestyle choices for both our member-owners and the general public. Our intent is to be a resource for information and action concerning health, nutrition, and the source of our products, as well as for community topics and other related issues.
We’re open 7:30am-8pm daily, and stock a diverse selection of "specialty" items for a variety of dietary needs, from gluten-free to vegan and vegetarian. Looking for that hard to find ethnic ingredient? The Co-op has a full aisle of Asian, Indian, Thai, and Mexican foods for your cooking adventures.
As part of our mission, we make it a priority to support local organic and natural farmers. Our produce department reflects that commitment by carrying a large selection of local fruits and vegetables in season, and providing support to local growers utilizing season extension practices.
The Co-op’s meat and cheese department has a variety of local, artisanal and international cheeses, free-range and organic poultry products, organically raised and grass-fed beef products, our own hand-crafted sausages from naturally raised animals and a selection of fresh and frozen seafoods.
Buying foods in bulk is for the economy minded, since the prices are almost always better than packaged items, and you can buy exactly the amount you need. You’ll find everything from beans and grains to granola and snacks. Our bulk spices and herbs are a popular draw. Buying in bulk also cuts down on unnecessary packaging, which not only saves money, but also some of our Earth's precious resources.
Please stop in and enjoy friendly service, good healthy food, and a wide range of wonderful products for you and your loved ones. Everyone can shop, anyone can join.
