An urban store with a small town feel
a friend for lunch in our deli and soak up the art by local artists
and our staff. Bring the whole family to our weekend tastings. We love seeing you.
On your way in, look up! We don't want you to miss our rooftop garden and rainspout salmon sculptures by Ivan McLean. They help collect and disperse rainwater. And nestled within our parking lot are nature pockets called bioswales filled with native plants that attract birds and wildlife to the neighborhood and help improve our city’s water quality.
We’re proud to be part of such a dynamic neighborhood.
Getting here is easy
- We’re right on the MAX Yellow Line, at the North Rosa Parks Way stop.
- Many Tri-Met bus lines serve the area frequently.
- There's bike parking too!
For $1 a year, we rent out the Northwest corner of our parking lot to the COFY (Career Opportunities For Youth) Station. It’s a little coffee stand run by at-risk youth through the POIC (Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center) — a great way to teach young people how to be successful in the workplace, and we’re happy to help out.
As a proud supporter of Loaves & Fishes, the Meals-On-Wheels People, we help make weekly deliveries of food and conversation to seniors in our neighborhood.

Grocery Stories Podcast: Food Works
Our Arbor Lodge store has a long-standing relationship with Food Works, a youth employment and empowerment program that engages 14-21-year-old young people in all aspects of planning, growing, selling and donating over 4,000 pounds of organic produce each year from their one-acre organic farm on Sauvie Island. Food Works provides our Arbor Lodge store with fresh, local and seasonal produce.
Grocery Stories is an interactive podcast series produced and conceived by guest artists Nolan Calisch and Molly Sherman, Portland State University MFA in Social Practice students.
