Café & Prepared Foods → Prepared Food

The Co-op’s Prepared Foods Department is a 24-hour operation that produces all-natural and delicious food for our customers.   The kitchen produces everything from hot lunches and dinners to freshly baked goods and grab-n-go items.  Selections will always include items that satisfy common special dietary needs and alternatives to commonly allergenic foods.


Hot Bar

The hot bar is one of the most popular features of the store.  Every day a menu of hot entrees, sides and soups are available from 11 until 30 minutes before closing.  Every day there are meat and vegetarian options, brown rice and a steamed hearty green vegetable.  For today’s menu, you can call 413.528.9697 x44 or click here.


Salad Bar

The salad bar is offered every day from 11 until 30 minutes before closing.  It features organic and sustainable salad greens and a variety of vegetables, proteins, sides and salad dressings.



Every day the kitchen produces a variety of convenience to-go foods.  Selections include salads, sandwiches and soups plus a variety of other menu options.  This section also includes the Fresh in the Deli program, which offers special deals on grab-n-go items made from recipes provided by a rotating list of fellow food co-ops.



The bakers work through the night to create cookies, cakes, pies, scones, brownies and more for the next day’s customers.  There are full pies and cakes for sale every day as well as slices of both.  All baked goods are made with all-natural ingredients, and gluten-free and vegan options are available every day.
