Full Service Grocery Store, Café, and Community Events
The East End Food Co-op is proud to be Pittsburgh’s only member-owned natural and organic foods grocery store. Our urban co-op has been serving the community since 1980 and is owned by approximately 11,000 members. As we grow and strive to meet the changing needs of our members, customers, and community we remain true to our roots by continuing to uphold the cooperative values we were founded on.
Best known for our bulk foods and produce departments, we specialize in a variety of organic and local products. Our award-winning vegetarian Café serves fresh soups, hot entrees, deli salads, and sandwiches that are all made in-house daily. Our commitment to sustainability is demonstrated by the care that our buyers take in selecting all of the products available throughout the store, including fair trade coffees, local products, and environmentally-friendly household cleaners. We also provide for the special dietary needs of our customers by offering a wide variety of gluten-free and raw items in addition to our cutting-edge supplements.
In addition to the market and café, we also encourage our customers and members to take advantage of the numerous ways they can become more involved in their co-op, including: participating in classes and lectures, attending special events and board meetings, and learning more about the cooperative principles we were founded on.
