We serve the needs of the local community by providing healthy, fairly priced, and locally sourced food where friends, families and neighbors can shop and gather in a welcoming, friendly setting.
Know Thy Food was born in February 2008 from the need for fairly priced, healthy foods among members of Portland Green Parenting. We are friends and neighbors who are interested in buying healthy foods at fair prices, supporting sustainable agriculture and protecting the environment. We started out as a small drop point for Azure Standard deliveries hosted in living rooms and kitchens, but quickly grew into a much larger multi-vendor food buying club.
Inspired by the successful model developed by the Oklahoma Food Co-op, we are now developing a farm-direct networking project that brings together local farmers, food producers and members who care about the land and share an enjoyment of simple wholesome foods.
Our Warehouse Café & Market is open to the public. You don’t have to be a member to eat, shop or attend events at our location. Our café offers delicious specialty coffee drinks. We serve breakfast and lunch prepared from scratch using the same high quality ingredients you will find in our market and online catalog. The market stocks a curated selection of our online offerings, including many basic staples and popular snacks, such as fresh organic produce, dairy and eggs, bulk foods, frozen meats, beer and wine, chocolates, personal care items, and so much more.
