[This store review, along with a few other posts you'll see soon, comes from Sara, to whom we are grateful. Thank you, Sara!]

The Flatbush Food Coop is the unsung hero of Brooklyn’s natural food markets. While many health-conscious Brooklynites are likely to think of the Park Slope Food Coop, this Cortelyou Avenue standout has served the Flatbush/Ditmas Park neighborhood for over 30 years and is open to both member and non-member shoppers. Despite its small footprint, the Coop is a full-service market with an emphasis on natural and organic foods that serve the diverse local community.

Always well-stocked and with products moving quickly, the Flatbush Food Coop offers a wide range of organic produce and grocery items as well as cleaning supplies, pet food, vitamins, and nutritional supplements. One can also find free-range meat, gourmet cheese and fair trade coffee in addition to harder-to-find products such as agave nectar and umeboshi paste. Personal care items and frozen foods round out their ever-evolving offering.

The Flatbush Food Coop delivers anywhere in Brooklyn. Their late hours (open until 11pm) and responsiveness to the community make this a great bet for locals. If the rumors of possible expansion are true, the Flatbush Food Coop will soon offer more products and better serve this active neighborhood.
