Respond to Review of Growers Market
by kindlizard

Review: Growers is a place that changed my life. But thats not to say its all good either. This place can be great, but as a coop, there is no oversight, no boss, for the bosses, that is, people can be as mean, not just rude, but actually downright personal in their attacks of you. The quality control also varies greatly. If some hippie doesn't oh say put the frozen food in the freezer right away, or something else back in the fridge after the day, an entire batch of x, y, or z can spoil, and if not caught in time, still be sold. However, thats the bad side. The good: I have met some of the greatest people ever working with and shopping with here. I have saved a ton of money on usually good, if not great food. Cooperative living at its best, and worst... but I try also not to hype it up too much anymore since it seems like it has evolved, continually. Though recently I have not LOVED the produce the way I used to, and I was weary of the flour I bought there in the summer heat. I do love this place, but likely it is not for everyone, especially if you expect immaculate place to buy your food. PM me if you want a history of the place, truly remarkable and worthwhile. BTW, other than dog/cat food, or "special orders", the place is 100% vegetarian, no cans of tuna and stuff. your welcome
