The Space @ GreenStar is a 3,400 square-foot, (60'x60') gathering space that can accommodate up to 220 people, outfitted with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and set up for in-house catering by
the GreenStar kitchen.

The Space is designed to be attractive, unique, and efficient. It is now available to rent for functions such as wedding receptions, business meetings, musical performances, birthday parties, church gatherings, art fairs,
or any event.

Catering

The catering menu includes breakfasts, lunches, appetizers, dinners, desserts, and beverages. We can offer anything from a 5-person to a 200-person event — from a full-scale sit-down dinner, to passed hors d'oeuvres, pizza parties and cocktail receptions to a business luncheon. The menu goes beyond our in-store fare, with all of the same GreenStar values.

ErikTOTN-smThe facility is designed for both buffet or table service.

The new full-service catering menu is guided by the same philosophy we have in the stores, and is overseen by GreenStar Chef, Erik Lucas.

We use as much local as possible; for example, partnering with The Piggery to use some of their charcuterie, or creating a beautiful vegan antipasti tray with house-pickled items.

Perhaps a roasted whole side of salmon with mango salsa, onions, and house-pickled vegetables and capers is more to your taste.

Co-op shoppers will find some of their deli favorites on the catering menu, translated into bite-sized servings: Mini-eggrolls, bite-size quiches, little crabcakes, mini-spanikopita, and mini-turkey meatballs with a tomato relish. Many classic GreenStar salads have been transformed into mini–tea sandwiches.

The same passion we feel in the stores about the cleanest, most responsible ingredients translates into our catering program. Nowhere else in town will you get catering services that are as green, from our use of local and organic food, to our composting and recycling practices.

Dessert offerings include bakery favorites served in mini sizes, as well as custom-decorated sheet cakes and wedding cakes.

  • At the August 14 and September 11 Council meetings, the GreenStar community began a lively discussion regarding the possibility that the Co-op will lift or alter its current ban on most goods produced in the People’s Republic of China in addition to implementing other product line guideline changes. (Please see additional coverage in this and last month’s Council News columns on page 3.) In order to allow this complex and controversial discourse to continue, short statements were solicited from those at the meet...
