Began in 1976 and nestled in a peaceful, artistic community in the Catskill Mountains of New York, the High Falls Food Cooperative is among the best of the best in this category of small, quality co-ops maintaining incredible integrity. A staple in the community and surrounding towns with over 500 members, the High Falls Co-Op offers the very best quality organic grocery items, produce, local meats, homemade sauerkraut and a variety of tasty to-go items. The co-op’s board is committed to supporting local producers and sustainable products.
In their own words, “From groceries to produce, from bulk grains and nuts to deliciously-prepared deli foods, what we sell reflects a philosophy that what we eat matters, and that sustainable use of resources and commitment to cooperative principles help to build the community we seek to serve.”
Well worth a beautiful, winding trip from the nearby towns of New Paltz and Rosendale. Be sure to check out the small falls in the town of High Falls, and spend some restorative time at Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk, and exploring the Shawangunk Mountains (known as “the Gunks”) for a hike, bike ride, bouldering and world-class climbing. This area is rife with quaint inns, galleries, fantastic live music, creative cafes and award-winning restaurants. Get lost for a few days of bliss meandering your way through the bustling college town of New Paltz, picturesque Rosendale and up north to Woodstock. Autumn is an especially spectacular time to visit this region.
