The Peopleas Food Cooperative is a full service natural foods grocery open to members and nonmembers alike. We offer a variety of food and other products that are good for people and good for the planet. From humble beginnings in 1971, our emphasis continues to be on products that are minimally processed and packaged, produced locally, and are certified organic and/or fair trade.
PFCas CafA Verde is Ann Arboras premier fair trade coffee bar. All of the coffee and tea served in CafA Verde is fair trade, meaning the farmer growing it was paid a fairer price. This helps to break the cycle of exploitation so frequently associated with these goods. Much of the coffee and tea is organic as well as shade-grown too. In addition to a variety of local roasters, we work primarily with Equal Exchange, a worker-owned cooperative dealing exclusively in fair trade coffee, tea, sugar, cocoa and other products. From farmer to co-op to you, by choosing a cappuccino or latte made with fair trade coffee, you are having a very real, positive impact on a farm family half-way around the world.
Lest this all sound too serious, let us assure you we like to have fun too. After all, food should be fun, shouldnat it? You wonat find company uniforms or canned music in the Co-op. Although we take what we do very seriously, we like to think we also maintain some of the quirkiness and aflavora that helps make Ann Arbor unique. Come in and see for yourself!
