The fresh produce is awesome. Bought some beautiful organic beets. Nice selection of fermented foods and organic meats. Will definitely go again. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

The Good Tern Co-op was open by 9 and a friendly worker greeted us on entry and offered to help us find anything. Our list was short but the food we got there was great. Special notes:... More

If you are looking for organic, local foods Good is the place to go. Not the selection that you will find at Whole Foods, but pretty good considering Rockland was a stinky old fishing village not too long ago. The staff is friendly and will help you find what you need.

Not a frequent shopper, but am not a stranger either. Small, but packs alot of product for sure! No qualms about that. However, the customer service leaves much to be desired. I realize a number of "employees" are volunteers/members? but shouldnt they still at least acknowledge you? Am I wrong? Last time I went in looking for a specific item... More
