Hungry? Good news: a new grocery shopping option is coming to the North County. Mobilized by a group of individuals who were dissatisfied with the grocery options available in the area, the Paso Food Co-Op is a community-owned grocery store with a mission to maximize the affordability, sustainability, and accessibility of local products. They are currently seeking members to become part owners of the state-registered co-op. Paso Robles food Co-op President Greg Ellis said that the main goal of the co-op is to “tap into the underground of local products that you would know of as a foodie, but isn’t available to regular folks right now.” He and the current members are “all just consumers who are dissatisfied with the limited selection of local groceries here. We feel that the north county has a great wine and food culture, and a lot of restaurants . . . but there’s not an equivalent in a grocery store that features the local, tastier options.”
“It’s fun. I love what I do, man,” Steven Rodriguez Sullivan said. “We’re going to officially roll out one of our new menu items, called ‘Ques-acos.’ I wanted a Quesadilla and a taco at the same time, you know. And that’s how Ques-acos was born.”
