[LOCAL/ORGANIC] Still the only cooperatively owned grocery serving Northeast Portland, this cozy co-op has had its doors open for just under a decade. Alberta Co-op’s inventory is impressive, going beyond the standard fare of Annie’s, Amy’s and Newman’s to offer a wide variety of bulk foods (including over 100 spices) and soaps, alternative milk products (hemp, hazelnut and oat milks) and local beers and wines, most at prices that put New Seasons to shame. Tags indicating the precise locality of products line the shelves, and charts explaining the structure of the organic industry make this shop seem like the real deal. When they put something on sale, get ready to load up.

Grocery list: Bulk tofu, Lost Coast Brewery Raspberry Brown, organic catnip.
