The Co-op offers an extensive selection of organic produce, grocery, dairy and bulk foods and herbs, as well as vitamins, homeopathics, cruelty-free bodycare and aromatherapy products.

People Announces Co-Op Scholarship!

In an effort to reach out to the local community and to assist students in furthering their education, Ocean Beach People's Organic Food Market, a California food cooperative, is sponsoring two $1,000 scholarships for all eligible college-bound high school seniors.

With these scholarships, Ocean Beach People's Organic Food Market is reaching out to extend knowledge and appreciation of the cooperative business model in order to effect change. We believe the co-op business model fosters thriving communities and we wish to encourage young people to seek alternatives to "business as usual" and actively engage in their communities at the local level.

Winter Hat & Jacket Drive

If you've purchased new warm essentials this year, please consider donating your older hats and jackets to those without. Scarves, gloves and lightweight sleeping bags are most welcome too! People's will have a collection box at the front of the Co-op all month and will be distributing all donations to those in need during January. Children's sizes welcome, too. Thank you!
