Nature's Way Coconut MCT Oil

Nature's Way Coconut MCT Oil

Contrary to popular belief, certain saturated fats, especially MCTs, are easy to digest and can contribute to heart health, obesity prevention, and brain health. MCT oil from coconut by Nature’s Way is made up of only the medium chain triglycerides, no additional oils or fillers.

Gluten-Free

Gluten-Free

An entire aisle at Basics, as well as a section of the Frozen Department, is dedicated exclusively to Gluten Free groceries.

Natural foods stores have historically been THE place to go for allergen-friendly and alternative diet foods. The shorter the list of ingredients, the easier it is to find what you’re looking for (or avoiding)! With the prevalence of Celiac disease on the rise and an increase in reported gluten sensitivities in recent years, Basics has been sure to increase our selection of wheat and gluten free natural groceries accordingly. Not only are the Gluten Free products at Basics carefully screened (we check every single ingredient on every single label before we place it in the Gluten Free section), they are also free of all artificial ingredients, to the same standards as the rest of our natural foods storewide.

Bulk

Bulk

Buy a Pinch or a Pound! Our Bulk aisles offer all kinds of everyday staples for purchase by the pound: herbs and spices, grains, nuts,  seeds, granola, trail mixes and snacks, flours, rice, sweeteners, and beans. Case quantities are also available by special order.

Great Reasons to Buy From Bulk:

  • Save Money – often dollars on the pound compared to the exact same foods pre-packaged!
  • Decrease Waste – buy just the amount you need.
  • Go Green- significantly less plastic and paper are used for packaging of bulk products. Plus, you can refill your own containers from home instead of adding more to the landfill.

Dry Grocery

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.

Meat

Meat

We strive to find the finest meat produced using environmentally friendly and humane practices. We do our best to source from local family farmers and producers first before we source from elsewhere.

At Basics, we offer both fresh and fresh-frozen meats including beef, bison, poultry, pork, lamb, seafood and venison. On a given day our fresh meat case is filled with steaks, roasts, hot dogs, gourmet sausages, pork chops, ground beef, whole chickens, chicken breasts and drumsticks. The freezer boasts a selection including ground turkey, beef and venison, and even locally raised pheasant.

As with every product at Basics, our natural meat has been carefully selected to avoid all artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. None of our meat contains added nitrates or nitrites.

Eggs

Eggs

GREAT CUTS, LOCAL FARM-FRESH EGGS

We strive to find the finest and freshest dairy, meat and eggs produced using environmentally friendly and humane practices. We do our best to source from local family farmers and producers first before we source from elsewhere.

You may have noticed many egg brand labels claim “farm fresh.” The vast majority of them are not, however, sold 7 miles down the road from the chicken coop! Our local farm-fresh eggs arrive weekly from Murphy’s Farm in nearby Milton, and from Wholesome Harvest in nearby Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin.

As with every product at Basics, our natural meat and egg suppliers have been carefully chosen to provide a wide variety of fresh, affordable, sustainable options.

Cheese

Cheese

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.

HAVE A GOUDA DAY!

Fresh Local & Organic Produce

Fresh Local & Organic Produce

20170404_152608.jpg

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!
