Special Orders & Good Deals
UNFI Special Orders
Many of the products on our shelves come from United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI), a natural foods distributor in Auburn, Wash. Co-owners can special order UNFI products in larger quantity often for better prices than shelf prices (your cost includes wholesale plus mark-up depending on total cost of order — ask at the Member Services Desk when placing your order). Buying Club catalog and order forms are available at the Member Services Desk. Click on links below to download/print a copy of the UNFI Buying Club catalog and the monthly specials catalog.
