An Afternoon at the CoOp in Fayetteville

We’ve reached that time of year where there are more fair-weather days than bad. Instead of spending that time inside, binging yet another season of New Girl, grab a friend, a dog, or a good book and spend the afternoon at Ozark Natural Foods on the patio. The patio is fitted with tables, comfy seating, swings, and an area to set up your hammock.

Ozark Natural Foods, otherwise known as the CoOp, offers a wide array of foods, products, and services. The CoOp is more than a grocery store, they are a kitchen, a café, a greenhouse, and a cornerstone for the community.

While planning your trip to the CoOp, consider bringing reusable bags to help stop the use of single-use grocery bags. BONUS: They also offer daily discounts on goods, exclusive to members. Become a member today!

My favorite part of the CoOp is going on their website and cooking the various recipes they have posted. You don’t need to be a seasoned chef to dive into the world of Blueberry Lavender Breakfast Pastries or Spaghetti with Crispy Lemony Breadcrumbs. Check out the full list of recipes here!
