Mountain people Organics and The Buying Club
We are open to the public and everyone is welcome to shop at Mountain People Organics. However, if you want to save even more money, you can become a Member of the Buying Club. Membership is $8 per month. Membership benefits are: access to FoodClub (our system of pre-ordering groceries); 15% savings on all pre-ordered items; 10% discount on all raw milk products; 5% discount on all other purchases.
Basically, we are a group of folks that have leveraged our purchasing power. We pre-order our groceries, from a variety of sources, on a regular schedule. For example; we order from Azure Standard every 2 weeks. This is where we get most of our grocery items. You can order ANY item they carry in stock.
We are not a “full-service” grocery store, nor do we aspire to become one. Stores have higher overhead due to employee cost, hours of operation, inventory and inventory loss. We have no employees. We have limited hours of operation and carry very little inventory. We use a “Just-In-Time” philosophy of operation, which helps keep our cost down.
MPO purchases items that are not usually available in The Columbia Farmory MarketPlace such as non-local, non-seasonal produce; grocery items including raw dairy, refrigerated and frozen stock and bulk dry goods. For more information, email Arleen@MountainPeopleOrganics.com.
