“INSANELY EXPENSIVE! Revolting Hot Bar”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

Please, spare yourself the torture financially and GAStronomically.

Between our local Big Y and Guido's which are next door to each other (guido's produce/organic better prices and quality!!!) you can save yourself HUGE amounts of Money.

(I do not work at either place by the way)

The Hot bar is just the worst of tired, old, hippie, food as opposed to eclectic hipster food with some semblance of finesse.

They cannot even make hummus! Chickpea's were not cooked enough and there were teeth cracking bits of agony upon the first bite. (this has been experienced twice as I am a glutton for punishment)

Leaden baked goods that by the way are NOT marked properly or marked down properly as they AGE.

If you know someone who is Vegan that you would like to hospitalize send them one of the Vegan Muffins. Once that sucker hits their bowels they will explode, which is why you should carry out this evil plan outside of your home. Either that or tarp the walls.

Better yet, give them the Hummus AND the Evil, Vegan Muffins of Death that way they will not be able to scream for help due to lack of teeth and be written off as some pervert when they ring 911.

This town has dark, dark, shopping secrets. Especially after you explode all over it, gratis the Berkshire Co-op.

Run and fear the Baked Goods of Death, Hot Bar Hell, Pathetic Produce and insane prices(unless you are into that sort of thing)

“I love the Co-op!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

The Co-op is a great place to shop! I love wandering the isles and end up finding more items than I was looking for. I end up purchasing extra things that I find on sale and will need or finding something new to try.
The breads are so good and my favorite is the Bridge Street Tempeh!! So good!!!

Produce from this market is exceptional. The soups are to die for. We shop here often and everything is delicious.

“Great Deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

They have a very good healthy food kitchen at this coop market. I recently enjoyed a chicken and pesto wrap that melted in your mouth. They will brew you a nice cup of tea but remember you may need to ask for a little cold water mixed in so you don't end up with burnt green tea. This market has lots of high quality pre-cooked salads, vegatarian and meat-containing dishes like curry chicken salad if you decide to have a picnic or like to keep frig stocked for ready to eat foods.
