Given Multnomah County’s advisory, masks are required in our store and in all indoor public spaces. Free masks are still available at the door if you forgot yours. But please remember to bring your reusable mask to reduce waste!
- Can I bring my reusable bag?
- Yes, as long as it’s clean and you bag the groceries yourself. Please shop into a basket or cart though to prevent cross-contamination and eliminate theft.
- Can I bring reusable containers for bulk?
- Yes, you can bring your clean containers!
- Can I bring in my bottle returns?
- No, we are not accepting 10 cent bottle returns for sanitary reasons.
- We only accept glass bottle returns from Garry’s Meadow Fresh milk, Fern’s Edge goat milk, and Lionheart Kombucha growlers.
- Do you offer curbside pick-up?
- Unfortunately, we don’t have the staff capacity or storage space to accommodate grocery pick-up. If you need someone to shop for you, check out Grocery Bloc PDX to be paired with a volunteer shopper!
- When is the best time of day to shop?
- If you are looking to shop with fewer people in the store, we suggest you avoid the 9-10 AM window and stop by in the afternoon. We rarely get busy around 2-4 PM on weekdays.
