Holiday Co-Op Shopping at Oryana

Oryana Community Co-op has gifts for celebrating Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, including fresh roses, chocolate, wine, candles, jewelry, perfume, gift bags, special desserts, heart pizzas and more. They prioritize fair trade chocolate so shoppers know they are supporting fair pricing for farmers. Purchasing fair trade roses supports floral workers, their families and their communities. The cafe dessert case features cakes, cheesecake and cupcakes, with regular, vegan and wheat-free options, plus more coming just before the big day.
