Holiday Gift Shopping at the Co-op!

You can avoid the stress and hassle of holiday shopping at the malls by choosing your neighborhood co-op for cool gifts instead! Our buyers did a great job this year carefully selecting beautiful and practical gifts including handmade items (some local and some fair trade and even some created by our own staff!) There’s something for just about anyone on your list!

The best part—many of these items are $20 or less! Even some of our own staff are inspired to do gift shopping at Valley Natural foods this year. Our education and promotions coordinator, Erin was kind enough to show us what she purchased for family and friends and the best part for her is “I’m now 95% done with my holiday shopping and it’s not even Thanksgiving yet!”
