The Triad Buying Co-op is a member-owned and operated food buying co-operative offering an alternative to commercial profit-oriented business. We are now located inside of Acadia Foods, at 228 W. Acadia Avenue, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Acadia Foods is a restaurant and coffee shop, and the TBC Grocery Store is open to the public! Please come in and shop, and ask about joining as a member.
We are committed to supporting:
- Our local communities
- Our local farms
- Our local businesses
We endeavor to practice and encourage sustainability.
TBC members enjoy easy online ordering every week, with order pick up at the co-op on Fridays. In addition to beautiful local produce, baked goods, and meats, we also order from national distributors such as Frontier and United. Through these distributors, co-op members have access to a wide variety of products including bath and body, baby, spices, teas, etc., at great discounts. Set up a tour today, or send an email if you have more questions.
Being a co-op member means you are part of something bigger. All members have jobs: from meeting delivery trucks, to sorting orders, to managing the website and much more. Most jobs take only a few hours each month.
We are located in the Washington Park neighborhood of Winston-Salem, just a short drive from downtown, at 228 W. Acadia Avenue, inside of Acadia Foods–convenient to reach from Peters Creek Parkway, Silas Creek Parkway, Interstate 40, and Highway 52. We distribute produce, dairy, eggs and bread weekly and further offer a complete line of products every four weeks.
