New York City has many wonders and the Park Slope Food Coop is definitely one. It’s the city’s oldest organic and local food supermarket and it’s mostly run by volunteers. So I was pleased to visit this strange place one day. Not that the concept of a co-op is strange, even in the US. But the fact that in order for me to visit it, I had to be personally invited by one of its members so I could walk around this peculiar market space with a big bright orange badge on my chest that said “Visitor”. And by “visitor” it means: look, but not touch or buy anything.
