Park Slope Food Co-op: Insane but Cheap


This just in: Members of the Park Slope Food Co-op have to put up with all manner of outrageous and bizarre antics from management and other members but they can score great deals on high-quality food, according to a story in today’s New York Daily News. Unless you’re new to Brooklyn, there isn’t too much here you haven’t heard before. A few choice tidbits: Celebrity members Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard wear giant headphones when shopping. Former member Adrian Grenier switched to the Clinton Hill co-op after being sanctioned for missing a work shift. And, most important of all, a helpful tip on how to shop efficiently: “As long as you’re willing to shop late at night to avoid the lines, you can get some great deals,” said one member.
