While we're celebrating, don't forget that October 14-20 is also "National Bulk Week," dedicated to increasing public awareness of the benefits of shopping the bulk-food aisles at both co-ops and regular supermarkets. According to a recent study by Portland State University's Food Industry Leadership Center in Oregon, consumers can save an average of 89 percent by buying from the bulk aisle. Ten states (Maine is not one of them) have officially recognized National Bulk Week, and more than 700 stores are participating somehow (including Good Tern Co-op in Rockland).
