All are welcome at the Belfast Co-op, a community owned health food store and deli/cafe located in scenic downtown Belfast, Maine since 1976. The Belfast Cooperative is a member-owned and controlled retail outlet for whole natural foods and other goods and provisions. We strive to offer a wide selection of products that are organically produced and locally-sourced whenever available, at reasonable prices, to support healthy lifestyle choices for both our members and the general public. Our intent is to be a resource for information and action concerning health, nutrition, and the source of our products, as well as for building community.
Founded in 1976 by folks who wanted a steady source of natural, wholesome food at fair prices, the Co-op operated out of two Main Street locations until moving to our current home in 1993. Our 6,000 square foot building, which we purchased in 1997, has allowed us to greatly expand our offerings. In addition to selling organic and natural foods, which we source as locally as possible, we carry health and beauty aids, offer our own in-house herbalist, source fair trade gifts from around the world, and operate a treasured community gathering space: The Co-op Café, which hosts a monthly art show and wine tasting.
