The Riverwest Co-op is more just a place to buy fresh kale or a Seitan Philly.It’s a cooperative—a community that shares a vision of food for people, not for profit.

In order to make that vision into a reality everyday, we need the participation of our member-owners. Come share some food with your neighbors, vote for our board of directors, and tell us your thoughts!

February Local Fridays: Tabal Chocolate

Tabal Chocolate in store

One of the store's newest product is also February's Local Friday product: Tabal Chocolate! Made right here in Milwaukee, Tabal Chocolate is made with the highest quality organic and Fair Trade ingredients possible. 
tabal
Tabal comes from a Mayan word meaning "relationship" in Mayan; for founder Dan Bieser, this means forming relationships with cocoa growers in several different countries. You'll find each hand-poured bar labeled with a batch number and the cocoa's country of origin. Now in stock at the Co-op we have Tabal 70% dark chocolate from the Dominican Republic, Bolivia, and Costa Rica.
