How would one go about finding one in the area they live in?
It all depends on where you live and how far you are willing to travel.
I searched for "minnesota co-op" and these are the first three results, but there are many more. I would contact one of these if they are not near you and ask for a referral. Minnesota leads the country in co-op sales, so there is most likely one where you live, etc.
can also give you some pointers
If you're in a larger city or town, they might have one open to the public.
Ask around with folks and at health food stores, etc..
Here in eastern NM, our truck comes out of Tuscon AZ once a month. There are several buying clubs in our town. I think this coop in AZ covers NM and even into West TX. I read about food coops years ago in a magazine and contacted the coop in AZ and they gave me the names and contact #'s for all the buying clubs in my town.
It is great. During the summer when I have my garden and can buy at produce stands, I hardly have to step into a store. Plus I like buying organic and buying in bulk.
Thank you for the info
