Staff Picks


Yuppie Hill Poultry Eggs

They’re from Burlington, WI!


Bell Wine Cellars Big Guy Red Wine

It’s red wine with a drawing of my dog on the label and, just like my dog, it’s so lovable you want to kiss it. (Available at North.)



I am so happy we started carrying these bars; they are super-tasty and such a clean, easy snack! All the flavors are great, but the chocolate coconut might be my favorite.


Alter Eco Dark Salted Burnt Caramel Organic Chocolate

I picked this bar out assuming I wouldn’t love it. I typically prefer a smooth creamy milk chocolate bar, but this stuff is good. It has a luscious texture with little crunchy bursts of salted caramel mixed in. The burnt buttery goodness is comforting. Organic, fair trade Swiss chocolate. It’s got it all going on.


RJ’s Soft-eating Licorice Mango 

Tastes like caramelized mango. The best thing you could buy in fruity chewy candy. 

JustPik’t OrangeJuice 

The most orange-bursting-flavored OJ I have ever found next to juicing myself. 


Follow Your Heart® Vegenaise®

Light and creamy—easily “dressed up” to make the prefect spread. Add lemon and mint for fennel and celeriac slaw. Add Sriracha for a spicy wrap. Or chives, thyme and black pepper (as a replacement for sour cream).


Fentiman’s Rose Lemonade

It’s the best kind of lemonade I have ever tasted! Incredible! Wow!


Paqui Tortilla Chips Nacho Cheese Especial

Gluten Free and non-GMO. Great chips to snack on plain or eat with salsa or sour cream dip. One bag is never enough! They taste amazing.



Annie’s Homegrown Organic Dijon Mustard 

This mustard is versatile: Alone on a brat or burger. Great whisked with honey and olive oil for a dressing. Try it on a cracker with some Braunschweiger. 


Siete Family Foods Cassava & Coconut Tortillas

Grain-free tortillas!



I am always so impressed with the variety and quality of houseplants that we sell at the Co-op. Almost every plant in my house has been purchased here and with no regrets! These contribute to the general loveliness of my apartment and also help to increase the air quality. 



Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries—nothing says yumminess like a bowl of mixed berries with a splash of cream. Oh my gosh—heaven in every spoonful. 


Willy Street Co-op Tropical Crimson Iced Tea




Evanhealy Green Tea Clay Mask

A bunch of people recommended this product to me but I never took them seriously. Boy, was I wrong. This mask clears up my blemishes and makes my skin look better than it has in years. You can actually feel it drawing out the toxins from your skin as it dries. This product is a must-try for face mask fanatics like myself!


Weleda Salt Toothpaste

It’s the ONLY toothpaste where my teeth feel truly clean. The salt and mint also pack a wallop of mouth-zing. Hear me now, and believe me later: This is IT!


Barlean’s Omega Swirl Ultra High Potency Fish Oil—Key Lime

This product is so beneficial to health and it tastes SO GOOD! I look forward to taking my dose of it every morning! It’s hard to believe something that tastes like candy can actually reduce your level of blood fat.


Baraka French Atlantic Grey Sea Salt

Best neti pot salt I have ever tried! I have used other ones and could never get the sting away, no matter how much salt or baking soda was in it. This one feels great, dissolves well, and tastes great. 


Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Pro Fiber

I like that this product has so many nutrients, such as Omega-3s, fiber, and protein, and that it is so easy to add to a smoothie. I like that it is organic and that it is from the hemp plant and not a cow. I even like that it is greenish, though this took some getting used to. It just feels so much more nutritious because of its plant-based color. I feel like I am taking good care of myself when I use this product. 


Andalou 1000 Roses® Shampoo and Conditioner

I admit, I was a bit skeptical about this product because I’m very loyal to my favored brands. I tried this shampoo and conditioner on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Not only is it great for color-treated and non-color-treated hair, but it also suds up well and rinses clean without making your hair feel dry and crunchy. And it smells SO GOOD!! Think of the subtle smell of roses after it rains, and you’ll have what this shampoo and conditioner smell like. Simply delightful. Needless to say, I’ve switched my loyalty to this fabulous line for my hair care.


Black Garlic

It’s really good on its own, on a pizza, or on a sandwich! 


Kalona SuperNatural Organic Whole
Chocolate Milk

Best Chocolate Milk I have EVER tasted! So rich. So creamy. Perfect Treat!

Sartori Dolcina Gorgonzola

 I use primarily on steaks and salads. Best Topper Ever!

Madison Sourdough Peach Danish

Are you looking to treat yourself with a tasty morning treat? This is the best. (Blueberry and Raspberry are a close second.)

Willy Street Co-op Sweet Greens Fresh Juice

My favorite way to “eat” my vegetables. And it helps my tummy feel better when it is upset. Available at East and West.

Willy Street Co-op Italian Marinated Chicken Breast

All of the marinated chicken breasts taste amazing when you grill them, and the Italian is my favorite. Ready to grill!



Ramps, Asparagus, Overwintered Spinach, Morel Mushrooms

May brings a special treat of the first locally harvested vegetables! If the timing is just right on the harvests, you can make the most simple and delicious stir fry. I absolutely love the combination of ramps (wild-crafted onions, which have a garlic and onion flavor), morel mushrooms (also wild-crafted), asparagus and overwintered spinach. This dream-team of veggies is delicious over rice, with pasta, or even mixed into scrambled eggs. 



Field Day Organic Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce

I use this product for all my tomato-y sauce needs. It has great flavor that melds well with any Italian dish (meatball subs being my favorite). Major bonus—it’s very affordable!


Annie’s Homegrown Spirals with Butter & Parmesan

While all the Annie’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese products are pretty good, this one is a standout. Perfect as a complementary side dish to a meal, but also works as the ideal midnight snack when you’ve got the mega-munchies.


Simply Gum Ginger

This gum is, well, just that—simply gum! The natural ingredients make for a better gum! The ginger flavor is perfect for soothing an upset tummy or giving you a zingy burst to bring your mouth back to life. Complete with papers for when you are done (trust me, this stuff gets kind of sticky!!); the attention to detail this company has gone to with their gum is phenomenal!

Mineral Fusion Sheer Moisture Lip Tint

This product leaves a light tint to your lips while providing moisture and protection! The colors range from subtle tones to my personal favorite, Smolder, which is a brighter, bolder hue.
