Rawvolution in Carbondale!

The Co-op has been steadily expanding its raw selection over the past several years — especially since hiring Southern Illinois’ most well-known raw foodist! This expansion has included a growing amount of local produce, general merchandise items such as books and sprouting kits, and grocery items such as Gopal’s Rawma Bars and Power Wraps.

Now, the entire wholesale catalog of Nature’s First Law will be available to all Co-op customers.

Due to space limitations at the current storefront, only a handful of these products are likely to make it to the shelves in the near future. Among the candidates for this shelf space are Nature’s First Food, a green superfood and probiotic blend, and Raw Chocolate Powder, the world’s first truly raw cacao powder. However, many other products from Nature’s First Law that aren’t on the shelves today will also be available through the Co-op by special order.

In addition to the new arrivals from Nature’s First Law, the Co-op has also started stocking Goji Berries and Raw Agave Nectar. Goji berries are widely known as a superfood due to their high content of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients. Raw Agave Nectar is a low-glycemic all-natural sweetner derived from the agave plant.

Together, these products expand the choices of the people of Carbondale and Southern Illinois by providing more food options that combine convenience, minimal processing, and natural nutritional value.

For more information, or to place a special order, contact the Neighborhood Co-op at 618-529-3533 or visit their website.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I am an employee of the Co-op, so I may have a bias in my presentation of this news story. 🙂 But it’s pretty big news for Southern Illinois regardless of my perspective!
