We are a food co-operative based in the Brooklyn, NY, area of Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and Prospect Heights.
We are a 100% working co-op — all member-owners contribute, at least, two and a half hours of work every four weeks (13 times a year). In return, we gain a strong sense of community and enjoy prices that are significantly lower than for-profit grocery stores. We are one of three such food co-ops in the U.S.
It’s basic to our mission to have a positive impact on, and relationship with, our community in every way possible.
- We value the spirit of cooperation and a democratic process in which each individual has a voice, and each member-owner works to support the Co-op.
- We strive to offer a range of local, affordable, organic, and sustainable food.
- As neighbors, we strive to reflect the community in which we live, and we actively work to ensure that the Co-op is accessible to all.
- We seek to develop the Co-op as an ethical entity, using transparent and socially responsible buying and selling practices.
