GreenStar Food Co+op opened the doors in May 2020 to its new flagship store at 770 Cascadilla St., Ithaca. GreenStar offers a convenient one-stop shopping experience in a uniquely vibrant atmosphere and an extensive variety of grocery and retail products. For shoppers committed to supporting local businesses and farmers, more than a quarter of GreenStar’s sales are from products grown or produced within 100 miles of Ithaca. 

Shopping the Co-op is easy and affordable with our everyday low-price Co+op Basics items. Just look for the purple tags on more than 1,000 items in the store.
