If you are in NYC and are wondering where you can get good, organic, local (whenever possible) fairly priced and fairly traded produce and bulk items, look no further than the 4th street co-op.
We are looking for new members. Working members work 2.25 hours a week and receive a 20% discount. Non-working members make a $35 contribution and receive an 8% discount.
It’s fun. It’s cool. It’s vegetarian. We’ve got great things like cold pressed olive oil, cacao nibs, sun dried olives and goji berries. Join us and start saving! I know you want 20% off your groceries. :)
Here’s a blurb from our myspace page:
I’m a food co-op located at 58 E. 4th Street (between 2nd Ave. and Bowery) in the Lower East Side/East Village community. I am the only all-vegetarian co-op in NYC, and I carry a wide variety of organic produce, health food, vegan fare, and environmentally friendly household products and personal care items that are available both prepackaged and in bulk. I offer local and fair trade products whenever possible and am currently trying to eliminate all products produced by corporations with questionable business practices.
Anyone can shop at the co-op but I’m all about giving discounts to members. I give up to 20% off ALL purchases and housemates can even share shifts but still get the full discount! Check my blog for more details on that.
We’re always looking for fresh talent, so if you aren’t able to work a weekly shift but would like to help out by sharing your graphic design, marketing, finance, or carpentry skills, or any other skills you may have, we can work something out.
