"Honest Weight has earned an excellent reputation in the Capital Region for serving high-quality, healthy foods so we know this new location will be extremely popular with staff and visitors," said Commissioner Destito. "Our customers have given us lots of positive feedback on the local food options in our main cafeteria area. With the addition of the Honest Weight Co-op Café, there won't be a better place in the area to sample so much great local food in one location."

The Honest Weight Food Co-op is a member owned and operated consumer cooperative that is open to the public and committed to providing the community with affordable, high quality natural foods and products for healthy living. Honest Weight was established as a buying club in 1976 to provide natural foods at low cost to its members. In 2013, after nearly 40 years of growth, the Co-op moved from its old Central Avenue location into a newly built store at 100 Watervliet Avenue in the city of Albany. In keeping with their mission, the building was constructed with an emphasis on environmental sustainability.
