The Valley Food Co-op is a member-owned cooperative whose aim is to provide quality, wholesome food and goods at the lowest practical cost. We strive to make Co-op membership welcoming and accessible to all residents of our diverse community and the surrounding areas. As such, the Valley Food Co-op accepts a variety of forms of payment, including EBT.

The products that the Valley Food Co-op carries—as well as our business practices—reflect the values and needs of our members with a specific emphasis placed on building community, promoting social and economic well-being, and acting in an environmentally sensitive manner.


Without owners and members, the Co-op is simply a good idea. Please visit our Ownership/Membership page to learn how you can become a member.

Valley Food Co-op shared San Luis Valley Hemp Company's post.

Hey y'all! Our hemp nuts (raw, hulled hemp seeds) are filled to the brim in the bulk bins! Come get as much or as little as you like!
From Healthline.com: "Hemp seeds contain over 30% fat. They are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). They also contain gamma-linolenic acid, which has been linked with several health benefits.
Hemp seeds are a great protein source, as more than 25% of their total calories are from high-quality protein. That is considerably more than similar foods like chia seeds and flaxseeds, which provide about 16–18%.
Hemp seeds are also a great source of vitamin E and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc."

Have you ever heard of Wild Yeast? Natural sourdough leavening from yeast captured in the air. You can follow all the lengthy instructions below, or you can just come to the Valley Food Co-op on Thursday at 10 and pick up a loaf of deliciousness (such as is pictured here) from Tumbleweed Bakehouse (TB)!! ;) Really, it's worth your time (cuz it's a LOT quicker) just to get a loaf from TB. Hope to see you then!!
