Since 1981, a local cooperative of folks who support the offering of local produce, organic dairy, vitamins and supplements & bulk goods have operated the Island City Food Co-op in downtown Cumberland. With fresh bread and bakery goods offered in their coffee shop adjoined to the store, this soon became a gathering place for locals to sit and gossip while they enjoyed a fresh cup of joe. Sadly the pandemic has put a temporary hold on folks gathering in such close quarters, but in an effort to adapt to the changing needs of their customers the co-op offers either in store or curbside pick up for your grocery needs. Just shoot them an email or give them a call and they’ll have your order ready to go in a few hours. For your convenience you can even purchase a voucher from the co-op so you don’t have to putz around with writing checks, getting change or using a card for every purchase. Simply purchase a voucher and charge your purchases to your account. You can view a full list of the products offered by the co-op on their website, and stay in touch with new arrivals by following their Facebook page.
It can be almost intimidating stepping into Island Wines & More due to their wall to wall selection of wines, liquors and beer. But never worry, as the staff there is incredibly helpful in finding just what you need, all you have to do is ask (or sometimes just look lost long enough and they’ll ask you instead)! They’ve got the largest selection of specialty wines, craft beers and spirits in the area. Even if you procrastinated buying the wine for the dinner party you’re on your way to, they’ve got a chilled bottle of wine perfect for the occasion and a hostess gift to boot! Also offering tobacco & cigars, ice, coolers and gifts, make Island Wines & More a must stop on your way to the cabin, dinner party or whenever you need to restock the liquor cabinet! Follow their Facebook page for giveaways, new arrivals and to participate in their Packer Game Giveaways.
