People's Food Co-op and Café Verde began more than 40 years ago, when graduate students from the University of Michigan first partnered with a Detroit farmer to bring locally grown produce to Ann Arbor. These days, the co-op partners with farms all across Michigan. Items in the store are labeled to give an idea of how far they’ve traveled: “local” means it's from less than 120 miles away, whereas “made in Michigan” means the goods are sourced from somewhere in the state or made on top of a map of the state.

In addition to its expansive produce section, the co-op holds a hot-food bar, a salad bar, a deli, a bakery, and a café rife with the aromas of 100% fair-trade, organic espressos, macchiatos, and lattes. The friendly staff also forges a variety of café sandwiches and pastries, some of which are vegan-friendly and others of which merely nod politely.
