Anyone know about UNFI buying clubs?

I am in Azure standard's dead zone (meaning they don't come near me ) I have been trying and trying to find something that would fill the ENORMOUS gap that Frontier has in their products. Would this fit the bill?

I have looked on their website but they are rather tight lipped about what they sell. I would love to find a coop for grains and other things that Frontier just lacks.

Thank you for the help!

My local food co-op will get me anything UNFI offers. To give you an idea of what it looks like, you can look here

http://lexington.coop/

And under downloads, click the special order deals list. Maybe your local co-op offers something.

Re: Anyone know about UNFI buying clubs?

My problem is I don't know where to find my local Co-op. I am friends with people that should know but I guess no one does... Maybe I need to start asking people about this. I know when Azure Standard discussions came up people seemed really interested and no one said that they knew of another place like that.

Thank you for sharing!

Central New Jersey. Thank you for the help! I am willing to travel if it was for a good deal.

My local co-op is a brick and mortar grocery store, run as a cooperative. You probably have one of those near you.

There is a mom and pop store not far from me... I wonder if they are the Co-op.

I asked my friend. He said its hard to say because different locations have different stuff and pricing. He suggested asking around to small grocers an seeing if you can find one that already orders from them.

my hubby works for UNFI... we get a bunch of stuff in their "store" (close to pull date, damaged, etc)

I had looked into their buying unit stuff when he first started 5 years ago...and never looked since
