Welcome to the Medford Food Co-op Bulk Food Department, where we carry everything from filtered water, beans, and nuts, to grain flours, spices, and several gluten-free options. Most of our products are Organic and we strive to source products from Oregon, Washington, and California. Oregon is home to many grain millers, which process grains grown here in the state. The Co-op has a great selection of bulk liquids, so don't forget to bring your containers from home to fill with yummy Oils, Vinegars, Honey, and more.
I began working in the Bulk department when we opened the store in August, 2011 and took lead of the department in November of 2012. My background is in botany and agriculture, but I have worked in retail sales for years. Most recently you may have seen me at the Rogue Valley Growers Market as a vendor. I enjoy cooking and baking, experimenting with flavors, combining herbs, vinegars, local cheeses, and the bountiful array of fresh, local fruits and vegetables. My husband and I moved to the Rogue Valley over 20 years ago and have enjoyed raising our two children in the small town atmosphere, having easy access to all things outdoors. You may see me out biking, hiking, tending my garden, or fishing at the Oregon Coast.
