The Co-op offers all of the products of a full-service grocery store, but with a natural and local touch.  Shop our friendly, neighborhood store for everything you need for quick week night meals, healthy lunchboxes or seasonal celebrations.

Our aisles are stacked with natural snacks, convenience meals, and family favorites.   We specialize in fresh, organic and local produce, affordable bulk foods — from granolas and nuts to local honey and whole grains — and local dairy and meats.  Hard to find foods for special diets, herbs and supplements, and vegetarian prepared foods have made us a Pittsburgh institution.

You’ll also find knowledgeable staff members to help you select something special on our shelves, answer your questions, or suggest a recipe.  So take a look around and let us know what you think.  And remember, everyone is welcome to Shop Co-op!

Special Orders

Special ordering is one of the original kernels of food co-operatives.  Many co-ops began as buying clubs in which friends gathered together in order to garner buying power and placed case orders with natural food distributors.  The East End Food Co-op’s special ordering service keeps that spirit alive.  Find out more about special orders at the East End Food Co-op.
