Seeking to Join Natural/organic Food Co-op in Indianapolis

My family used to be a member of a natural/organic food co-op that folded about a year ago and are looking to join another one (to supplement shopping at local farmers' markets and natural food grocery stores). Any leads/information would be appreciated. Thank you!

There is also a new store going in where the old Atlas (I think? it was before I lived here) was in Broad Ripple. I have heard it will be like Wild Oats and Sun Flower Market but don't realloy know anything about it other than that.

It's not necessarily a co-op, but they do use a lot of local farmers/bakers/etc.

This place delivers!! I just discovered it recently. We've gotten 3 deliveries so far and LOVE it. The produce is great. I also get eggs and soy milk. There are meats, breads, dairy products...you name it. I highly recommend the organic whole wheat pumpkin bread! :)

It's nice to not have to drag the kids out shopping. Plus, it is forcing me to cook more b/c I don't want it to go to waste.

You have a "standing order" that you can modify each week. I've recommended it to everyone in our co-op preschool class.

Enjoy!

I am watching to see what comes up. I was not aware that Sunflower had closed or that Wild Oats had changed companies, since I moved out of Broad Ripple. I guess we will need to inquire at the Farmers' Market behind Broad Ripple High School when it opens.

Hello. My husband and I are part of "Farm Fresh Delivery". They provide local organic produce and other items delivered to your home on a weekly basis. You register on their website and every week pick out the food you want to purchase. Their website is farmfreshdelivery.com

Have you asked about this at Sunflower? They may know of one. If you do find one, would you mind posting?

Good luck, you have lots on your plate (no pun intended).

Good places for organic items are whole foods/Wild oats, Farmers market, Georgetown market. Some stores-even now carry organic items- although I do not know how authentic and true they are.

There will be Indy's only natural foods cooperative store opening just east of downtown spring 2010....www.IndyFoodCoop.org

We currently have over 250 members, have raised over $250,000 in grants to help cover start-up costs so we can keep our product costs down, working with a lot of local producers, suppliers. Check it out and hope you join!
