Everyone Is Welcome!
Founded in 1974, the Blue Hill Co-op has been a gathering place for the Blue Hill Peninsula community for over 30 years. We are more than a one-stop natural foods market and café. The Co-op preserves the feeling of an open-air market where you see friends and neighbors. Our staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and always ready to help. What sets us apart is our commitment to healthy, high quality, local-when-available products at affordable, competitive prices.
We are proud of our selection of local, organic, sustainably grown, international, and specialized items, not available elsewhere in Blue Hill. We offer the area’s largest selection of fresh organic and local produce, year round. We sell over 500 bulk items; some are local, most are organically grown. Our cheese department is known for the raw milk and handcrafted cheeses from Maine and New England, as well as artisan and specialty cheeses from around the world. We offer locally raised, wild, organic and pasture raised meat, poultry and fish.
Our extensive health and beauty section features vitamins and supplements, natural body care products, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, and Maine made and wild-crafted products. Our Cafe offers delicious, freshly prepared vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare daily for eat-in or take-out. Customers can enjoy splendid soups, salads and sandwiches, organic and fair trade coffees and teas, and rich, tasty pastries.
Description of Business
Our consumer food cooperative originated in 1974 as a buying club with the goal of bringing fresh produce, cheeses, and whole foods to the Blue Hill peninsula. The buying club was incorporated as a Cooperative in 1979. Over the years a store front operation began, was moved, and expanded many times. READ MORE
