All three locations feature both a market, and delis with seating, serving a variety of prepared foods. Bloomingfoods offers a large selection of foods for those with food based allergies
The west side store is the site of the former Encore Cafe, which the co-op acquired in May 2002 and continued to operate until November 2006. The cafeteria was running at a loss and the co-op board decided that this was hurting the other activities of the co-op and converted the business to a grocery. A deli and cafe seating still provide in-house and outdoor dining.
Membership consists of purchasing a share that costs $90, quarterly and monthly payment plans are available.
