Our Calendar of Events is now up and running! Check it out to see upcoming vendor demos, classes, and promotional events!
Your Daily Brew
Many CreekSide members have expressed a desire to be able to buy brewed coffee in the store. We started selling coffee on Sundays and next week we will expand that schedule, offering Green Street coffee and a selection of teas every day at $1.49 a cup (they will still be $0.99 on Sundays). Since the opening of the co-op the business on High School Rd has increased. Hong, the owner of Elkins Perk, reports that he has seen a noticable uptick in his sales, and that he fully supports the co-op offering simple cups of coffee to our customers.
Hot Bar Menu
A link to the daily offering on the CreekSide hot bar is posted in the panel on the right of this page. Each day’s menu is posted by 10 am.
Cents & Sensibility by Dianna Marder
We serve brunch every Sunday from 9 am to 1 pm. It includes whatever you want from the buffet, a serving of eggs, toast, and coffee or tea for $11.99 (children under 12 eat for $7.99/children under 2 eat for free). The hot/cold bar will still sell items, including breakfast fare, for $7.99 lb, and coffee and tea are sold separately by the cup for $0.99. You can also order eggs separately (egg orders include toast)– scrambled or fried eggs are $2.49 for 2 eggs; Chuck's amazing omelets with choice of any 3 fillings are $6.99.
To order brunch you are asked to go through the check out line designated for brunch sales. Once you have paid you will receive a plate and a coffee cup and you are welcome to help yourself to whatever you want from the buffet bar, place an order for eggs at the open kitchen in the community room, and fill up your coffee cup at the coffee station. If you are ordering eggs separately pay for them at checkout, and you will receive a voucher that you can take to the open kitchen.
Get Your Knives Sharpened While You Shop
The second Sunday of every month (next date: June 9th) Neil Jacobs will be at the Co-op from noon to 4 pm sharpening knives. Bring in your dulled or nicked knives and he will sharpen them while you shop. Depending on the size of the knife, prices for sharpening will range from $4.00 to $10.50.
Weekly Senior Discount Days
Every Tuesday anyone 65 years or older receives 5% off on all of their purchases. Seniors will need to show a form of ID that confirms age at check out, and the cashier will take the discount off of the sale.

Making Artisan Pasta with Aliza Green
Sunday May 19, 2:30-4:00
Join local chef and consultant Aliza Green, author of Making Artisan Pasta, for a demonstration of fresh vegetable-based pasta including porcini mushroom pasta and asparagus pasta. You will learn how to make fresh pasta dough, how to roll it out, cut it, and store it. We’ll also make two simple sauces to serve with our pasta, of course, using products from our Creekside Coop. If you love fresh pasta, this class is for you! The book will also be for sale and Aliza will be happy to personally autograph it for you.
On February 20 CreekSide Co-op received the go-ahead to apply for an E-license which would allow the co-op to sell 6-packs of beer. Look for news about our progress in the upcoming weeks.
