More About the Bulk Department

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!

Warm Up With Some Miso Soup

Joe Damiano,
Bulk Department Manager

The Bulk Department is your perfect one-stop shop for soup ingredients! Stock up on South River Miso for a warming bowl.

It's kind of funny to be writing this on a beautiful, sunny, 57-degree mid-autumn day, but I'm pretty sure it'll feel like full-on winter by the time you read it. One of the most comforting things that I do for myself during the winter months is to make a nice big pot of soup — especially miso soup! Our bulk miso comes from South River Miso, a family-owned, artisan miso company located at South River Farm in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains in Conway, Mass. They've been making handcrafted, wood-fired, certified organic miso for over 30 years according to a centuries-old Japanese farmhouse tradition — time-honored methods in an atmosphere of respect for careful food preparation that's seen as fundamental to the healing arts. Sometimes it's the small comforts that get you through the winter.
