Why Buy Local?

  • Keeps money and jobs in the local economy
  • Supports independent, small, and unique producers & family farms
  • Cuts time and distance from production to market, reducing pollution from freight and ensuring fresher food
  • Creates direct relationships with producers, which yield better oversight and quality for consumers and better pricing for producers
  • Helps preserve food diversity, as crops and products can be grown or created that are unsuited to factory farming or large-scale production

Flatbush Food Co-op carries products from over 300 local farms, creameries, breweries, butchers and charcutiersand other producers!
