When I wanted free range organic aggs and almond milk in Boseman this was the obvious choice.

They had what I was looking for...even when the staff seemed a little unfamiliar with almond milk and wasn't sure they'd have organic eggs. (Their larger location is better stocked than the smaller downtown store.)

“Wish we had a Co-op in Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

As a family who is pretty picky about the food they eat, the Co-op more than met our needs. In a one week visit we were probably shopped at the Co-op six times. Our lodging included a kitchen, and although there were many great restaurants from which to choose, we opted to prepare our own dinner each night with food purchased from the Co-op. The vegetables and seafood were extremely fresh with an more-than-ample selection. I'm still jonesing for their coffee. It was incredible. I should've brought more home.

“Wonderful Grocery Store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

You don't need a membership for the Co-op...you just walk in and fall in love with this store. Similar to a Trader Joe's, but done Montana style. Fresh meats, meals, and veggies. There are two stores on Main Street in Bozeman. They also have frozen meats that are vacuum sealed. There is a deli where you can have a sandwich made to go. Lots of choices for healthy alternatives.

“Quite Tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

I'd fondly call this a crunchy-granola spot to grab what turned out to be a really good lunch. Loved that the build-your-own sandwich menu wasn't just meat/cheese--some great non-meat options, and it was not a problem to mix-and-match items. (I had egg salad with spicy mustard on rye. Generous portion, great flavor!) As with many trendy "crunchy" spots, there were some interesting and varied options for drinks and sides; you can also do a hot buffet, salad, and soup option by-the-pound, which is cool. Really liked that the eat-in options were plated, with easy recycling for drink containers. It felt like a high-end school cafeteria, and I got to eat lunch with the cool kids. My lunch kept me fueled for a 6-hour drive home, no problems!

Generous lunch for two was under $15. I'd say that's a pretty good value! MUCH nicer than fast food while traveling!

“Arrogant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

They need to bring in someone to train the workers in customer services. For some reason, the people who work here have an attitude that they are doing the customers a favor by letting them shop in the store. I refuse to spend my money in a store that is so arrogant and rude to customers.
