Choose In-person shopping or pickup
Each week you can choose to order online for pick up OR shop in person. You will receive the same amount of food both shopping in person or ordering for pickup, so choose whatever method you prefer. Remember to bring bags for your groceries.
If there are no order times available, you can still drop by to pick up a standard order. If it’s not busy you may also be able to shop in person.
Parking: Parking is on the streets around The Compass. There are limited Compass & visitor spots just inside the parking lot behind the building (on the left). Please do not park in tenant spots or in front of the double warehouse doors where we receive deliveries.
