About Tidal Creek Cooperative Food Market
Tidal Creek Co-op was incorporated in 1982 as a consumer-owned cooperative natural food store. From the beginning, offering high quality natural foods at competitive prices has been central to Tidal Creek’s philosophy. Because of this, shopping at the co-op means experiencing the comfort and assurance of knowing that on the shelves you will find the best, most healthful products available at the best possible prices.
Our commitment is to provide products which are the healthiest for our shoppers and our planet. The Tidal Creek Buying Team is committed to make purchasing from local growers and small farms a priority. We will work to ensure that our products are free of GMO’s, hydrogenated oils and artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives and flavors. We will provide our customers with meats and dairy products that are free of added hormones and antibiotics. We will offer beer and wine from smaller vineyards and microbreweries and make organic and no sulfite choices available. Whenever possible, we will purchase from companies that embrace ethics and standards similar to the Co-op’s.
Tidal Creek provides the most complete shopping option for people in the Greater Wilmington community interested in pursuing a healthy lifestyle and conscious of where their dollars are being spent. Beyond being a great place to buy groceries, Tidal Creek serves the community in many ways: education–hosting events and publishing a regular newsletter; outreach–forming partnerships with other community organizations and supporting local charities; and community-building–providing a place for people to meet, connect, and share information and ideas.
Tidal Creek Co-op is unique. It’s a place to buy the groceries you need to nurture your family, while being part of creating a healthier future for our community and our planet.
