Definition of Bulk

The following product quantities are considered “bulk buys” with all lesser quantities considered single items and subject to retail prices:

  • bags of 20 pounds or more
  • buckets of 5 gallons or more
  • cases, 1 case minimum
  • herbs and spices, 1 pound minimum
  • items not offered in cases, minimum quantity of 6

Buy Club Guidelines

  • All Buy Club or Special Order pricing is for Yelm Food Co-op member-owners only.  At this time, we do not have the space or resources to facilitate orders from non co-op members.  (In most cases, it is cost effective to become a member.)  To do so, please click on the following link for an explanation of the benefits of becoming a member.)
  • Special Order items are those not available through either Azure Standard or United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI).
  • Prices are subject to change.  Our standard markup for all Buy Club purchase is 20% over cost.  Prices do change from the manufacturer and we may not know that until the products arrive!
  • Due to very limited storage space in the store space, all Buy Club purchases need to be picked up on arrival day.  The Washington State Health Department will not allow us to leave any food items on the floor overnight.  Please help us by not placing orders that you can not pick up the same day they arrive.
