I Love the Wedge. It is such a vibrant store! They are my favorite food store in the twin cites and one of my favorite co-ops in the country! They have a wonderful produce and meat/seafood section as well as bulk spice and tea section. Also, they have bulk nut butters! The quality here is amazing. I highly recommend this store.

While I do respect that The Wedge has a fabulous selection and is well-known for supporting local farmers, I have honestly never have had a more uncomfortable shopping experience (and yes, I have been here numerous times) in my entire life. Not only are the prices ridiculously inflated (for example, the same bottle of tea tree oil costs $6 at Trader Joes while it costs $10 at The Wedge), the employees sulk around as if you are being done a favor by shopping there. I stopped at the cosmetics desk to inquire as to where I could find citric acid and was ignored for 5 minutes while the two girls behind the desk gabbed. When I approached the checkout and smiled at the cashier I was greeted with a scowl and a person who seemed unable to maintain eye contact. After I was done being rung up (a $60 bill for 1/2 a bag of food) I struggled to bag all of my food whilst holding a small baby as the checkout girl stood there and stared off into the distance.
Seriously, the East-Side co-op is pricey but at least the people there don't act like you are raining in on there parade with your presence. Or better yet, stick to farmer's markets for produce and go to Trader Joes for the rest of your stuff. I have no idea how all of these gutter punks whose bikes can afford to shop there and feed themselves. I have a dual income family and we would be bankrupt if we did HALF of our shopping there.

The Wedge Co-op has long been a destination for people in the Twin Cities shopping for natural and organic foods and products in a friendly environment. That friendly environment was due, in part, to the friendly and ethical manner in which Wedge management treated its employees. Lately, however, something seems to have gone amiss. Wedge management has started treating its employees as if they are the enemy and a number of longtime cashiers were fired for very flimsy reasons. If you believe that employees should be treated fairly, then you may want to reconsider shopping at the Wedge.
