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!

Look for organic sprouted seeds, nuts, and trail mixes from Living Intentions. They're tasty and packed with nutrition!
In May we're bringing in a new line of raw, sprouted, gluten-free, and vegan foods from an exciting new company called Living Intentions! Their delicious products include a wide range of organic sprouted nuts, seeds, and trail mixes. They've also got sprouted grain cereals with ingredients like maca root, astragalus extract, ginseng root, and reishi mushrooms. Otherwise stated, these foods are packed with some serious nutritious goodness and, best of all, they taste great! Examples of some of our incoming selections are: Cilantro Lime Mojo pistachios and pepitas; Spinach Pesto walnuts, almonds, and pumpkin seeds; and Maca Honeycomb cereal, just to mention a few. They make great snacks, breakfasts, or nutritionally powered additions to just about anything. We'll be running an introductory sale on these items throughout the month of May, so give 'em a try!
