Many of you may be familiar with some of the big name grocery stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joes. Some of you may not realize that those stores are based on a much older community based grocery store, the Cooperative. The Brattleboro Food Co-op began in 1975 as a small buying club. Today, the Co-op is a 16,000 square foot supermarket that is enjoyed by the Greater Brattleboro community. The Brattleboro Food Co-op is community owned and supports many Vermont and other local food producers. The Co-op is stocked with healthy foods at reasonable prices in a relaxed and friendly environment. The staff is knowledgeable and eager to help shoppers in any way that they can. The Co-op is located in downtown Brattleboro, VT and a must stop if you are in the area. If you are not in need of groceries perhaps you will take advantage of the wonderful deli that you can eat in or take out for a picnic. Maybe you are looking for some Vermont cheese, beer or wine – you’ll find great selections of each at the co-op. The Brattleboro Food Co-op is the place to go for a taste of Vermont, second only to the breakfast you will receive at Forty Putney Road Bed and Breakfast, of course.

What does the Brattleboro Food Co-op have to do with Forty Putney Road Bed and Breakfast? Well I am a working member of the Brattleboro Food Co-op which in addition to giving back to a great local place also gives us a 10% discount. We love the fact that we use locally made cheeses and locally grown produce at each breakfast. It is lots of fun trying interesting ingredients and unique juices for breakfast. We invite you to join us in supporting the Brattleboro Food Co-op and all of the people and producers that make it so special.
