Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op
The quality products at Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op do more than nourish bodies—they also nourish the local community. The store's shelves and coolers feature vegetables grown without synthetic insecticides, humanely raised meats, organic dairy products, and farm-fresh eggs. It's all in keeping with the co-op's original mission (now in its fourth decade): provide the public with high-quality, nutritious foods, many of which are sourced from nearby farms.
Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op holds itself to the same strict standards as the farms it buys from, with an emphasis on sustainable farming practices such as efficient water usage and recycling. They even chose to invest their own time and overalls by purchasing Heritage Point Farm. The farm's 25 acres of land provides co-op shoppers with fresh salad greens, herbs, and all natural eggs.
