The George Street Co-op is a food cooperative located in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The George Street Co-op runs a retail store at 89 Morris Street, selling foods and select hygiene and household products to the general public and to its membership. The Co-op, as it is known to its members, maintains a focus on offering vegetarian,[1] organic, local food, naturally grown and fair trade products.[2] This focus on vegetarian fare extends to The Namaste Cafe upstairs.[3][4] The space upstairs also serves as a community space for everything from yoga classes to comedy shows.[5]

History[edit]

The George Street Co-op was formed in 1973 when ten people from the Rutgers Vegetarian Club started a buying club out of a garage near George Street in New Brunswick. A year later, the Co-op moved to a new building on George Street and opened a small retail store.[1][6][7] In May 1988 the George Street Co-op purchased and moved into a new building at 89 Morris Street.[1]
