Huge Changes!

We are changing our name and growing! The wall has come down and the whole building is now the Public Market. We are expanding the retail part of the store from 5,000 to 15,000 square feet.  Every section of the store will be bigger, we are adding two conference rooms, beautiful big rest rooms, a meat department, and many more surprises. We have changed our name from Terra Organica to simply Terra (that’s what most people call us anyway), we have a new logo, and we are excited as heck. We are open our regular hours during these changes and expect the new areas to be open late summer / early fall. If you have any suggestions for new products to bring in, please let us know here. 

 

Organic

We have more organic products than you can shake a stick at, including the area’s only all organic produce department, bulk foods, fresh and frozen meat, and a gazillion other organic products.  Plus, all of our produce is 20% off every Sunday!

 

We Label GMOs

We were the first store in North America to label products that are likely to contain GMO ingredients.  That said, we stock very few products with GMOs.  We have also committed to (1) replacing the ones we have with non-GMO equivalents, and (2) not bringing in any new products that may contain GMOs. 

 

One of the Top 12

In 2013, the Organic Consumer’s Association chose Terra Organica as one of the Top 12 Right-To-Know stores in all of North America!  We were recognized for “leading the natural food industry by working with manufacturers and local producers to transition to non-GMO ingredients and by advocating for GMO labeling.” 

 

Gluten Free

A super duper dedicated gluten free grocery section and three freezer doors of gluten free goodness.

 

Nutritional Supplements

Instead of stocking fifteen linear feet of B vitamins, we do the research and stock only what we consider to be the best and highest quality vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics, herbs, homeopathic remedies, and so on.  We have a kick-butt selection of superfoods, including the whole line of Health Force Nutritionals products.  We’re also into food grown vitamin lines like MegaFoods and New Chapter.

 

Dairy

Organic milk.  Raw milk.  Local milk.  Milk in glass.  Organic cheese.  Raw cheese.  Local Cheese.  Artisan cheese.  Cream, and the rest of it.

 

Raw foods

One of the best selections to be found anywhere on the planet.

 

Discounts Like Crazy

We have an ever-changing assortment of organic and natural foods at discount prices. Additionally, on Sundays we have our produce sale (20% off all of it) and on Wednesdays seniors (65+) get 10% off everything in the whole store!

 

Beer & Wine

No cheap crap – just the good stuff at competitive prices.  Of course, this includes organic, sulfite-free and gluten-free selections.

 

Juice Bar

The Juice Bar is undergoing a change in ownership and should reopen in September 2014. Sorry for the inconvenience.   

 

Café / Deli / Bakery

Trapeze makes exceptional espresso from wild-harvested coffee beans, Panini and hot sandwiches from organic and ingredients, fresh organic deli salads, a delicious selection of organic and gluten free baked goods, and so much more.

 

Herb Store

Owned and operated by an accomplished herbalist, Living Earth Herbs stocks organic and ethically wild-crafted culinary and medicinal herbs.

 

Plus . . .

Video rentals, a sushi restaurant (Makizushi), a used book store (Mt Baker Books), a community bulletin board, a 99¢ fee ATM, downtown Bellingham’s only food court, free wi-fi, a comfortable and inviting environment, free recycling for cell phones and all types of batteries, a clothing donation bin, and an amazing community of customers, business owners, employees, farmers and others.  Terra and the Bellingham Public Market invite you to browse, eat, hang out, or shop!
