The first hot days of a Brooklyn summer can be excruciating. On the packed subway cars, the heat makes commuters extra irritable and stinky. The ice cream truck plays an incessant siren song, tempting you with processed sugary treats. The tree huggers among us torture ourselves further by seeing how long we can go before turning on the AC. Perhaps even your all-natural deodorant is letting you down and failing to keep your body odor in check. It may seem like there is no relief in sight- but then you remember that the Bushwick Food CoOp is here for you!
A sweltering hot afternoon is the perfect time to dig through the treasure chest that is the CoOp freezer and stock up on icy cold products like frozen fruit from Woodstock Farms. The CoOp carries organic frozen strawberries, blueberries, mangos, and raspberries.
Beat the heat with frosty summer smoothies, cocktails or home made popsicles!
