About Steep Hill

Welcome to Steep Hill, Saskatoon's non-profit bulk food store run by paid member-managers with about 10% of the membership helping with the shelving, packaging and cleaning. Our philosophy is to provide high quality local, organic, and natural food at fair prices.

As Steep Hill members, we have the opportunity to be involved in the operation of our store. Together, we are able to control the quality, sources and prices of the food we eat.

Steep Hill Food Co-op provides an alternate way of shopping in the Saskatoon community.

What's so special about our food?

People are becoming increasingly concerned about the nature of the food they eat. Quality has been sacrificed for quantity by our food industry. Medical evidence has linked many major health problems to over-processed, nutrient-poor food.

Whenever possible, Steep Hill suppliers are LOCAL producers who offer the best available product. Organic foods (those grown or processed naturally without the use of chemical additives) are given preference over non-organically produced foods.

We at Steep Hill feel GOOD about what we eat!

Why a Co-op?

As a co-operative, our products represent what our members want: quality, not profit, is our motive. We as Steep Hill members have the opportunity to be involved with the everyday operation of our store through a monthly work commitment.

Shopping at Steep Hill is a friendly experience, without the pressures and stresses of supermarket shopping. Meeting your neighbours, getting to know people with similar concerns are added attractions at Steep Hill Co-op. Nobody profits except the members.

What are our prices like?

Prices at Steep Hill are not designed for profit - they reflect only what is necessary to cover our costs.

Steep Hill's large selection of foods that are relatively unprocessed makes it easy to eat healthfully and economically.

Steep Hill does not sell or supply grocery bags

Please bring your own grocery bags with you when you come to shop - tuck a couple in your purse, knapsack, pocket, car, jacket - so you always have some.

We do not sell or supply grocery bags. We may have some boxes available but can not always guarantee their availability.

We accept donations of extra cloth bags that you no longer need.
