Alfalfa House is a not-for-profit cooperative that aims to provide, where possible, minimally packaged and minimally processed, affordable, wholesome, organic food to its members.

Most of what the co-op sells is un-packaged. Shoppers bring their own containers and scoop, pour or ladle out the exact amount they want. Neither you nor the environment pay for unnecessary packaging.

As well, you only buy what you need - the price per kilo is the same whether you buy 5 grams or 5 kilos! The co-op stocks a surprisingly wide range of foods for such a small shop.
