Richfield Reviews by Nicole Sobania
In this edition of Richfield Reviews we will be reviewing our Local Lakewinds Food Co-op located right in the heart of Richfield off of Lyndale Ave. First, it is important to understand what Co-op means. This term simply means a cooperative business in which the business is voluntarily owned by the people who use it. It is operated for the benefit of its’ members and co-op’s main goal is to meet their owner’s needs. That being said, Lakewinds Food Co-op specializes in providing products that are healthy, free of harmful ingredient/additives, and processed in an environmentally friendly and humane way.
What to Expect When Shopping at Lakewinds Food Co-op
Upon first glance Lakewinds appears to be much like a cross between Whole Foods and Trader Joes. The store is very clean and staff members can be seen consistently stocking the shelves. Their produce section has a wide variety of organic fruits and vegetables and everything appeared to be very fresh. One of the biggest benefits of shopping here is their wide selection of bulk items, including everything from nuts, spices, oats, coffee and a ton more! This was by far one of the best things about this grocery store if you aim to eat healthy and don’t want to spend a fortune. Their bulk items are also a great option if you are shopping for one and want to choose the quantity of what you are purchasing. The next big benefit was their incredible deli including a fresh salad bar. They have a ton of great varieties of fresh made soups, entrees, sushi, and much more. The deli is ideal if you are looking for a healthy meal on the go. In addition, the store has a huge wellness section in which you can find a huge variety of vitamins, supplements, skin care products, and general well-being items. With such a great selection of wholesome organic foods and wellness goods, you will find that this is the ideal store if you only want to have to make one stop and get the highest quality products.
To be honest there really are not many downsides to shopping at Lakewinds Food Co-op, and the only possible negative is that pricing can be a little high, but you are getting exactly what you pay for – high quality, healthy foods, which in the long run is definitely worth the price.
