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.

A variety of fixtures allows for flexible lighting, from bright overhead light for meetings and conferences, to dim mood lighting for intimate gatherings and evening events.

A floating "cloud" ceiling system was chosen for its unique look, acoustic properties, and flexibility.

Audio-visual equipment includes a video projection system, a large projection screen, and a PA system, which can accommodate anything from conferences to concerts.

  • The rocks are not so close akin to us as the soil; they are one more remove from us; but they lie back of all, and are the final source of all. ... Time, geologic time, looks out at us from the rocks as from no other objects in the landscape.
