A unique grocery store in Brooklyn New York, owned and operated by its customers.

In the shadow of Wall Street and economic crisis, an institution that represents a less well-known American tradition is booming. Founded in 1973, The Park Slope Food Coop is a cooperative supermarket where 16,000 members work three hours per month to earn the right to buy the best food in New York at incredibly low prices. Inspiring as much hatred as enthusiasm, this is probably the best-implemented socialist cooperative in the United States.
