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!

New in Bulk

That Java Jive

Joe Damiano,
Bulk Department Manager

fair-trade-coffee-peruCoffee lovers, we've brought in a few new organic varieties for you, and this month one of them is a Member Deal at just $8.99/lb!

In Bulk this spring, we have a few new coffees to celebrate — all Fair Trade, all organic, and all seriously delicious. First up is the Natural Blend from Gimme! This was my personal favorite in recent taste tests: hard not to like hints of chocolate-
covered cherries and blueberries (YUM!!). Since Gimme! stopped production of the longtime favorite Fractivist blend after New York state banned fracking, this is what I chose to replace it. Next up is Papua New Guinea from Tierra Farm. I brought this in because coffee grown in Papua is said to actually be alkalizing to the body (coffee is usually acidic). Last, but definitely not least, is a single-origin Mexican Coffee from Tierra Farm — back by popular demand. To sweeten the pot, we'll be offering the Mexican Coffee this April at the great Member Deal price of $8.99/lb.
