I Love Outpost
Why do you love Outpost?
For years we've been hearing that our Owners love Outpost. So one day, we decided to ask them to tell us why. So, how about you? Are you an Outpost Owner? Do you want to share the love? If so, please contact us and you too could be featured!

“We love Outpost Natural Foods and look forward to shopping at the new Mequon store right in our neighborhood! We have financially invested in Outpost because we believe in its philosophy of sustaining our environment. On our travels around the United States we seek out other co-ops because we trust the high product standards of food cooperatives. Because Outpost is locally owned we know we will always have ready access to local products from area farmers and related businesses.”
“I love Outpost for many reasons. They work tirelessly to foster a better food community, from producer to consumer. Countless small businesses have received valuable advice to better make and market their products from Outpost’s buyers. Outpost’s shoppers are the beneficiaries of this level of involvement - they get to support many different food producers whose products are all conveniently located in one place. More of our dollars get to stay in the community too!”
“I love Outpost because of the wide selection of delicious healthful food. Outpost was selling organic produce back when most people had never heard of it. The co-op business model, the owner loan program and the Outpost Visa card all give me opportunities to invest my money locally in an enterprise that I strongly want to support. Also, Judy Mayer, Outpost’s nutritionist, answers all of my questions about nutrition and recipes.”
“It was an evening that my daughter was suffering from a severe ear infection and I was determined not to use antibiotics. I took a trip to Outpost looking for some garlic drops for her ears. It was there in the aisles of State Street Outpost that I met Amanda who would turn out to become a dear friend of mine! She overheard me asking an employee about the drops, so she gave me some information on garlic poultices and some other natural remedies. She was also looking for something and I offered her a homeopathic suggestion. As we were talking, I said, “We should be friends!” And the rest, as they say, is history!”
