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!

|Try Bulk Organic Coconut Oil for Holiday Baking and More|
By Joe Damiano,
We've got bulk organic extra-virgin coconut oil, one of the healthiest fats around, and new Fair Trade hot cocoa mix!
One of my favorite products in the Bulk Department is Nutiva's organic extra-virgin coconut oil. This is the highest quality coconut oil on the market, period. Organic coconut oil is a rich and healthy source of saturated fats. These healthy fats have immune-boosting properties, as well as antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Research has shown that the lauric acid found in coconut oil helps reduce cholesterol levels and blood pressure. And your entire system benefits from good fats as the weather gets colder. On the more decadent side, also just in time for winter, we're now carrying Fair Trade organic hot cocoa mix from Equal Exchange in Bulk. It's on sale all through December, so now is a great time to give it a try. You won't be disappointed!
