The Space @ GreenStar is a 3,400 square-foot, (60'x60') gathering space that can accommodate up to 220 people, outfitted with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and set up for in-house catering by
the GreenStar kitchen.

The Space is designed to be attractive, unique, and efficient. It is now available to rent for functions such as wedding receptions, business meetings, musical performances, birthday parties, church gatherings, art fairs,
or any event. Call 607-277-1567 ext. 511 to reserve the Space @ GreenStar today!


The catering menu includes breakfasts, lunches, appetizers, dinners, desserts, and beverages. We can offer anything from a 5-person to a 200-person event — from a full-scale sit-down dinner, to passed hors d’oeuvres, and cocktail receptions to a business luncheon.


We use as much local as possible; for example, partnering with The Piggery to use some of their charcuterie, or creating a beautiful vegan antipasti tray.

Co-op shoppers will find some of their deli favorites on the catering menu. Dessert offerings include bakery favorites served in mini sizes, as well as custom-decorated sheet cakes and wedding cakes.

The menu goes beyond our in-store fare, with all of the same GreenStar values. Talk to us about options for wine and beer.

Receptions, meetings, parties...


A variety of fixtures allows for flexible lighting, from bright overhead light for meetings and conferences, to dim mood lighting for intimate gatherings and evening events.

A floating "cloud" ceiling system was chosen for its unique look, acoustic properties, and flexibility.

Audio-visual equipment includes a video projection system, a large projection screen, and a PA system, which can accommodate anything from conferences to concerts.

    I have woken to a new day, a day when GreenStar's annual Member Meetings and pancakes are defined as pure elegance and inspiration. Surprised?

    The morning after our Fall Member Meeting, I'm entranced by the experience of last night. I realize how far GreenStar has come over the years, and how integral and essential a partner we are in the wider regional food movement before us. Our roots as a buying club and grain store have matured into a multimillion-dollar community-ba...
