Shop Tomorrow and Saturday


Union Church, 7915 Ridge Blvd.

3/14, 5:30-8:00pm
3/15, 11:00-1:00pm


If you have become a regular shopper we assume you have come to know that the produce is excellent; mostly organic and provided by local farms. We are running out of table space as the shelf stable offerings are constantly expanding.

We would like to feature just a few products offered at the next distribution which we hope will provide some insight as to how products are selected.

The coffee comes from Giving for Living and assures fair trade to selected coffee growers in the Dominican Republic. It is interesting to note that this non-profit organization is committed to making books available to the children and travels around in a library on wheels doing so.

The Bibb lettuce comes from Finger Lakes Fresh. The workforce is a group of disabled employees. The product is grown in a hydroponic greenhouse. The crop is small and provides an alternative to large scale product shipped long distances.

Look for cranberry apple butter; a new product at this distribution. This comes from Cross Creek Farms, a small family owned and operated farm in Berkshire, N.Y. Most of the fruit comes from Cornell University orchards in Ithaca, N.Y. This small batch product contains nothing but fruit and spices...no sugar no sweeteners.

These choices reflect the mission of the Bay Ridge Food Co-op in many ways. If you wish to work with members currently selecting products we know your effort would be truly appreciated.

Yes, I did say the shelf stable table is over flowing. Look for roasted salted cashew pieces, green organic lentils, wild blueberry preserve, sunflower seed butter no salt, no sugar and organic milk chocolate Easter eggs.

New Space?

If you are reading this, you probably are interested in the idea of a food cooperative in our area and you may be uniquely able to help!


The co-op has faced a number of challenges in the last weeks and passion and determination have been the name of the game. We are so grateful to the First Evangelical Free Church for the two years they have given us, but their needs have changed as have ours and it is time to move on. We have been exploring a few great options.


Thanks to Owl's Head Wine Bar, we will continue to have Saturday distributions in their fantastic establishment. Again, the next one is on June 8th. Our two Saturday distributions at Owls Head have generated much excitement among members and prospective members. The spirit was electric. The interest in the coop is growing. We are anxious to keep up the momentum. Please join us in our efforts to find a new space. Perhaps someone reading this letter has a perfect suggestion or a willingness to assist us in our search. If so, please email the distribution team at brfc.distribution.com

As always....LOOKING FORWARD TO SHOPPING WITH YOU!

We have Mexican Cooking on the Mind!

CYCLE 43 Food Distribution

Tuesday, April 2nd

As the committee members selected product for this cycle they must have been dreaming of a trip to Mexico or perhaps thinking of a favorite Mexican restaurant. We hope the products offered this cycle will inspire your shopping and encourage you to get out your recipes and create a meal inspired by the Mexican cuisine.

Tortilleria Nixtamal located in Queens offers corn tortillas which "are not just for holding your food together." Made from non-genetically modified corn, these tortillas are nothing like the brittle tasteless ones we are used to.

Taza Chocolate Factory of Sommerville, Mass. brings us chocolate produced in Mexican tradition. The chocolate is stone ground on a grist mill crafted by the owner. We are offering chipotle and coffee bars. If this is not enough Laxy Crazy Acres brings us Mexican chocolate gelato.

Now for today's riddle. Do you know what cardoon is? We do. You can Google it or better yet come shop on April 2 and ask us.
