Organic, Local, Natural, and Ethical Food and Products

Bulk

In today's culture of ready-to-eat and food-on-the-go, we invite you to peruse our huge bulk department and enjoy the colors, textures and scents. Here you can get all of the whole and natural ingredients you need to make...well, just about anything!

In our Bulk Department, you can buy as much as you want or as little as you need. A teaspoon of nutmeg? No problem. A fifty pound bag of all-purpose flour? We can do that, and we'll help you carry it to your car.

With everything from popular favorites like freshly-ground peanut butter and coffee to items you’ve been meaning to try, like avocado oil or brown rice pasta, you won’t believe what you can get with 20 bucks. That’s because our bulk foods use less packaging, processing and labor. That saves us money so we can pass the savings directly on to you. Just scoop and save.

Meat

At Honest Weight, we value the kind of transparency that lets you know exactly where your food is coming from, what went into its production, and who the farmers are that grew it. We are lucky to live in an area with a rich agricultural tradition and dedicated growers, committed to treating their animals and land with respect. We strive to offer information on the benefits of buying and cooking ethically raised meats and seafood, inform on the impact on the environment and our health, and to generally be available as a local resource. 

Sustainable Seafood

Buying seafood can be a little tricky—there are so many varieties and so many factors! Which is better, farmed or wild-caught? What about protecting the dolphins? And trawling? And sushi! What’s safe to eat?

Grocery

Honest Weight's Grocery Department is stocked with all the basics you're used to, plus new and hard-to-find natural food items. What you won't find is anything containing high fructose corn syrup, artifical colors, or anything else on our Banned List.

These are not store brand groceries, but organic, local and fair trade groceries - and Honest Weight is one of the only places in the Capital Region where you can find them in a selection this large. That's because at the Co-op we support responsibility, environmental awareness and health.

The Department encompasses areas within the Co-op year-round, and outdoors during the planting and growing seasons. We base our purchases on several factors, including: what is in season, what is new, what customers are requesting, what we know our customers will want, what is simply intriguing, what our farmers/growers are featuring, along with other notes/requests gathered daily. We are happy to also try to special order plants for people!
