Get back to basics with bulk foods at GreenStar. With its strong emphasis on organic and locally produced foods, our Bulk Department truly reflects the needs and values of our membership.
Dig into our large selection of healthy and hearty whole grains, beans, seeds, nuts, fruits, oils, vinegars and sweeteners as well as an amazing selection of granolas, trail mixes, and other snacks.
Every day, in our aisles, you'll find products that represent GreenStar's commitment to protecting the environment and workers' rights. Most of our products are organic (some conventional equivalents are also available) and Fair Trade Certified coffee, chocolate and sweeteners also abound. Of course we are always on the lookout for new Fair Trade products and will stock them as soon as they become available. We also offer many locally produced, organic products such as beans, grains and seeds from Cayuga Pure Organics; maple syrup from Wards Maple; honey from Rowland's Honey; and tofu from Ithaca Soy (made from local, organic soybeans, too!) just to name a few. We also carry many products to support wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free diets that may be hard to find elsewhere.
Our friendly and knowledgeable Bulk Department staff has many years of natural food experience and is always available to answer your questions, or help with your specific needs, whatever they may be.
The Bulk Department enjoys support from a large crew of member-workers that help to keep us stocked, in exchange for a healthy discount at the checkout lanes. Some of our member-workers have worked in the Department for over a decade!
Whether you're looking for some basic organic staples to cook dinner at home or for a potluck or some decadent, organic, Fair Trade treat for your sweetie, you'll find it right here, in Bulkville!
New in Bulk
|Locally Spouted Nuts!|
By Joe Damiano,
Organic nutritional yeast?! Yes. And new locally sprouted nuts, more snack mixes, and local, organic dog treats — in Bulk!
Lots of new products have been rolling into Bulk, so let’s talk about some of the latest and greatest. Something I’ve been trying to source for a long time is now here — organic nutritional yeast! Produced in Germany, and European Union Organic Certified, this product is free of GMO’s, gluten, and soy! Loaded with B vitamins and minerals, it’s low in fat and sodium and high in fiber. Other new products include more varieties of sprouted nuts from our neighbors at Emmy’s Organics: sprouted curry cashews, sprouted spicy cashews, and sprouted walnuts with coconut sugar — all delightful! Other new snacks for your nibbling pleasure include miso curry nut mix, hickory-smoked almonds, and ginger snaps, to name a few. We’re even adding a new organic dog treat from Bo’s Bones, a small, sustainable local business that uses locally grown organic ingredients. So stroll on over to Bulk — you never know what may be waiting for you.
