Save time and cut down on food waste this holiday season with these tasty tips.


Great pie takes a lot of work, or at least it used to. Now with ready-to-cook Mom's Pies, you can end your holiday feast on a high note without spending hours slaving away in the kitchen. Pull it from the freezer, pop it in the oven, and an hour and a half later, you've got an amazing pie on the table. You can even tell them it's Mom's! Made in Eugene, each Mom's Pie contains just five ingredients: local berries or fruit, sugar, salt, vegetable shortening and flour.

First Alternative's bulk section allows shoppers to buy as much or as little of a product as they need. This comes in handy over the holidays when rarely-used recipes call for uncommon ingredients. Cinnamon, sugar, cloves, star anise, bay leaves, cardamom, nutmeg, and more-we've got 'em. Don't use old spices you found collecting dust in the back of the cupboard, come to the Co-op and get them fresh, and in exactly the quantity
you need.
