The People's Supermarket
On the way to Coram's Field yesterday we decided to stop by the cheapo chain supermarket in Lamb's Conduit Street to pick up some carrots to feed the animals. Instead of the usual consumerist nightmare we found this brilliant community owned and run co-operative in its place. We chatted to the lovely smiley lady behind the counter about the store - staffed and run by members who volunteer a small number of hours per year.
I remember reading about a similar scheme in Brooklyn, NY - great to see it taking off here.
