First – the FOOD: We nourish a healthy community by providing real food, with an emphasis on products locally sourced, organic, minimally processed, free from harmful additives and fair trade whenever possible. We at VFC love food, talking about seasonal offerings, new recipes, favorite products and our purveyors. There’s always something new to learn.
Next – VANCOUVER: Everyone is welcome to shop at our member-owned grocery store located in downtown Vancouver, Washington, and in our on-line store located right here within these web pages. VFC started as a buyers’ group, then grew to an online store. We’ve added our Main Street retail store, serving the local community and the lunch crowd seven days a week. Downtown Vancouver is burgeoning with new businesses and seasonal events and we are pleased to be part of the scene.
COOPERATIVELY speaking, nourishing a healthy community involves more than just food. VFC exists as a non-profit organization with a Board of Directors, active committees, over 400 member-owners and a group of volunteers, all of whom are vital to our presence within the community. Participate at any level and you will find connection to events, interesting people and a regional food scene – all fun, dynamic and tasty!
