As an unabashed despiser of soulless corporate businesses, and a borderline socialist, you'd think I'd be the first to sing the praises of and 80-year-old cooperative grocery store in my neighborhood. Alas, this is not the case. The Co-op on 55th Street manages to have high prices, bad products, long lines, and a bizarrely spotty selection, all at the same time.
The only things to be said for this place are that (1) I can get there without a car and (2) it's better than their other branch on 53rd Street.
If you're shopping for groceries in Hyde Park, get everything you can from Hyde Park Produce, and then fill in the gaps at the Co-op.
