We are grateful for all of the hands that work hard to feed us over our holiday season. Our Produce Manager George has put together a wonderful line-up of local, organic, and in season produce items and preparation ideas to help keep your holiday table fresh and affordable, and of the highest quality!
While we aren't selling turkeys this year, we do have everything else you need for a wonderful harvest day of gratitude.
We're also excited to be offering everything needed for holiday tamales, including masa (organic and conventional) and corn husks! Masa is available in our bulk bin, as well as packaged.
Click through to our bi-weekly Co+op Deals Flyer for your holiday favorite deals, and come into the Co-op to see everything else we've put on sale for you!
For the first time, we will also be OPEN on Thanksgiving Day, from 10am-6pm. We are excited to be in service to our community!

These sales are an in-store benefit of our Co-op's membership in the 150+ food co-op strong National Co-op Grocers! You do not have to be a member to receive these great prices, they're for everyone :)

Local Farmer Impact 11/4-11/10: 41% of all produce purchases came directly from Tri-County farmers!
We're so excited for our newest Farmer Direct Connection: Chuy Berry Farms! This week we're offering their delicious blackberries for $3.69/ea.
Farmer Direct relationships are so meaningful to us, because they allow the most money to stay in the hands of the farmer, with less hands in between the fields and the Co-op.
We are over the moon about November local strawberries ($4.69ea) and crispy sweet snap peas (5.99/lb) from Farmer Alex at Frecker Farms in Carpinteria.
And our friends at Harvest Moon Farm and Ebby's Organic Farm are offering a wonderful deal on all things greens! $1.69ea for curly kale and assorted lettuce heads!
Look for your Thanksgiving Day of Gratitude posting later this week, but click through the flyer for some holiday favorite specials too!

Co-op Thanksgiving (Day of Gratitude) PSA:
Our Little Co-op is not selling turkeys this year, and instead we are happy to be working with Jeronimo Alonso Brown and his Casitas Valley Pastures!
For more information about these incredible heritage turkeys, please visit www.casitasvalleypastures.com or email casitasvalleypastures@gmail.com. You can also reserve at the Santa Barbara Farmers Market TOMORROW (sunday) in Goleta.
For non-pastured turkeys, we are suggesting reserving through Lassens Natural Foods & Vitamins, their Goleta location is accepting reservations online for Diestel free-range and organic turkeys.
We are selling all plant-based meal centerpieces at our Co-op wholesale pricing level, and have all of your favorite seasonal produce and holiday meal-makings ready for you, also at sale prices!
This year we're also selling everything you need for holiday tamale making, including masa and corn husks!

The Co-op will be OPEN from 10am-6pm on Thursday, November 22nd! We are excited to be in service to our community, as a grocery store and gathering place on this day when building a longer table feels more important than ever before.
