The Potsdam Food Co-Op, Part 1

Every time I drive in to Potsdam I am struck by the beauty and charm of the Potsdam Food Co-Op. Then I began arranging my trips so I could stop there for an organic, tempeh and local greens wrap with a couple of honey/pistachio bars for desert. But on this day I decided I'd also take some photos, beginning with their stunning garden pathway from the sidewalk:

Inside I found baskets, fruits and all manner of natural goodies:

Onions, potatoes, tomatoes:

Various hummus mixes and - well, I don't remember what else:

And produce galore:

Eggs, yoghurt, dairy:

And bulk foods of all kinds. I bought some oat bran, a food which I learned to love long before it became popular. Now its fad status has passed and one can only buy it at such places as the Potsdam Food Co-Op:

Prepackaged grains, flours, mixes:

And coffees, lots of coffees:

And teas:

Cereals of various kinds. But there was lots more to see and I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
