Stories

Community is at the center of everything we do.

Our stories are about our vendors, growers, nonprofits, local organizations and businesses. It’s through these essential connections that we build a successful and sustainable community.

  • Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates

    If you’ve ever grabbed a few chocolates wrapped in bright foil while standing in line at Co+opportunity there’s a good chance you’ve been delighted by Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates!
  • Del Real Medjool Dates

    Dates are great – not just spending time with a loved one (though that’s both good and good for you!), but eating dates. Specifically, eating raw, organic, family farm-grown California dates like those from Del Real Organic Medjool Dates.
  • Stehly Farms Organics

    Stehly Farms Organic is as committed to the environment as they are to great tasting produce, utilizing myriad technologies from seed to table.

  • The Grove

    Sweet, seedless oranges that are best eaten fresh (rather than juiced) – yes, please! We’re delighted to get super fresh organic navel oranges from local grower The Grove, Co-opportunity’s supplier of choice for over a decade.
  • Forbidden Fruit Orchards

    Organically farmed on a southern slope in near Lompoc about 12 miles east of the ocean, Forbidden Fruit’s blueberries thrive in the same microclimate that produces great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
  • Wilgenburg Greenhouses

    The first California tomatoes of the season are in at Co+opportunity! Vine-ripened, picked and packed by cotton-gloved hands, the tomatoes from Wilgenburg Greenhouses are something special.
  • Herbalist William Broen

    We feel fortunate to have the exceptionally knowledgable William Broen as a new addition to our Wellness Department!
  • Alcantar Organics

    Jose Alcantar and his daughter Maria are the proprietors of Carpinteria-based Alcantar Organics, where they grow a wide variety of vegetables and berries popular in Ventura county farmers markets, Malibu, and Santa Clarita.
