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 :)
As the 101 is closed until next week most likely, we are very grateful for our Goleta superhero farmers Ellwood Canyon FarmsEbby's Organic Farm and Good Land Organics helping keep up supplied with local & direct-trade produce!
And we thank Heath & Lejune and Veritable Vegetable for driving the extra (extra, extra) distance to ensure that we have a full set of organic, high-quality, mostly family-farm produce for all of you to enjoy.
If you are down south in Carpinteria and Ventura, please consider an extra bit of support to your farmers who can't get up to SB for their usual markets. It's a really hard time for our local producers with so many cancelled markets and less ways to bring produce around the community.



This is a unique and dynamic position that requires attention to detail, high energy, the ability to balance multiple demands at once,  self-direction, self-education, collaborative planning and organization, team-building & training, visual creativity, bravery, inspiration, excitement, and most importantly, a passion for food, food justice, grocery stores, community, place-making and the cooperative business model.

The Co-op’s story is created and shared through social media platforms, email newsletters, events, workshops, store tours,brand-partnerships, community connections, and more.  You will work with the Co-op Team to develop, steer, and amplify our story to the Santa Barbara community and beyond.

Please email gm@islavistafood.coop for more information about the position, and for application next steps!

Oh hey there 2018! We're so happy to see you. January is always an exciting month at the Co-op, because it's our BIRTHDAY and the anniversary of our historic building purchase crowd-fund! Look for a sweet celebration next week.
We're also making up for some lost events in December, including our tea & chocolate tasting and our favorite Sunflower Kid's Club! activity day of the year, just pushed back a month - Holiday Houses!
The Co-op is open tonight until 8pm, and closed tomorrow.
We are continuing to run our Thomas Fire Relief Help in-store efforts thorough the new year, and are planning some donations to be shared in the next week.
We wish you the happiest of holidays, and send many blessings for a wonderful new year.
Sending so much gratitude to the firefighters who protected Santa Barbara from disaster, and who continue to fight Thomas in the back country (and will be, through the new year).
