Dry Grocery

Everything from Natural & Organic Snacks to Soups, Sauces, Baking Ingredients & MORE!

While healthy eating begins in the periphery of the store with fresh ingredients, we also carry a huge selection of natural and organic dry pantry goods. Chips, crackers, cookies, hot and cold cereals, granola, even fruit juice-based candy are featured in our center aisles. Canned and boxed meal solutions abound, including BPA-free canned vegetables and beans as well as aseptic packaged soups, sauces and dairy alternatives. All dry grocery at Basics is free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.



Probiotic Cheese, Raw Cheese, Organic Cheese, Grass-Fed Cheese, Award Winning Artisan Cheese & Cheese Alternatives

Located on prime Wisconsin dairy land, Basics of course offers a huge selection of Wisconsin cheeses! Brick, Farmers, Colby, Swiss, Cheddar, Gouda, you name it- we have it. If we don’t, we’ll be happy to special order it for you! Our WI Cheese Boxes are the perfect gift for family and friends who don’t have the luxury of living in the Dairy State…and we’re happy to ship them anywhere in the continental U.S. from October through May.

For our customers with a pallet for world cheeses, we also offer the best of imported varieties ranging from Italian Parmigiano Reggiano to Irish Dubliner and everything in between. For our vegan friends we offer a wide selection of cheese alternatives.

Regardless of origin, each variety in our cheese case is carefully and thoughtfully screened- at our store you will NOT find artificial colors or flavors, trans fats or other “yucky” fake ingredients. We Read the Labels, So You Don’t Have To.


Fresh Local & Organic Produce

Fresh Local & Organic Produce


The Basics Co-op Produce Department carries a variety of organically grown produce including fruits, vegetables, herbs and seasonal plants. We also take pride in offering as much locally grown produce as we are able to source, year round!

How do I know what is local?

When you visit the store, be sure to check the chalkboard just inside the front door- we update it weekly with our locally grown availability, including the name and location of the farms who supplied each item this week.

Also look for the “local color” stickers we use all over the store next to price tags to denote that an item was grown in Wisconsin.

*Basics Co-op Owners enjoy 10% off regular-priced Fresh Produce every Monday!
