Just thought you might like to know about our coop, BulkNaturalFoods.com. We order fresh natural and organic produce, raw nuts, garden herb plants, whole grain wheat, and other bulk natural foods, directly from orchards and growers across the country. Delivery points are throughout middle Tennessee. I hope you stop in and take a look. :-) Erin

I notice that this was posted a couple of years ago. I am planning to move to Memphis soon, and am wondering if the Midtown co-op is still in existence.

The Memphis Mid-town food coop is closed and has been closed for some time now. Please remove it from your listing
