Seward Co-op Grocery and Deli

Since 1972, Seward Co-op has been an example of a passionate business committed to serving the needs of, and keeping resources in, the community. The new green facilities have an open, farmer's market feel, offering organic and earth-friendly options. The 8,000-member co-op stocks culturally specific foods that represent the neighborhood, such as the Ethiopian bread injera, and features diverse live music performances in the sunny dining area every Sunday. You can even learn a few new things at Seward, with educational resources such as film screenings and hands-on workshops, such as "Build a Personal Solar Station" and "Sausage-Making Basics."
