Respond to Review of 4th Street Food Co-op
by Bill K
Review: This is a tiny, tiny place where most of the daily food essentials can be bought, but there is not shelf space for much else. A very good selection of produce, and during the growing season the members and staffers obtain as much locally- and regionally-grown produce as possible, often making deals with and buying from the organic farmers at the Union Square Greenmarket. Therefore, your food is fresher than the stuff of dubious age and quality, grown thousands of miles away, that is sold at most NYC health food stores. As a co-op, profit is not the motivation for this store's existence and the sense of purpose and camaraderie, as well as loyalty to the project, among its members is high. Open seven days; non-members can shop here as well.
