    Hi- I was at the Evanston farmer's market this morning, and the Rogers Park Food Coop had a table set up. I said I had never heard of them, and I asked if they were open yet. They said no they were not, but they were actively looking for locations. They are looking for a location in either the Northern part of Rogers Park or in South Evanston. I suggested they look at the old Whole Foods location on Chicago Avenue. I put my name and email on their mailing list. I said I had some concerns about whether they could compete price wise with Whole Foods. They said they thought that some of their prices would be higher than WF, and some of their prices would be lower. I suggested that they post here promoting their coop, and one of the gentlemen said they should do that. He used to work for Spice House, and so he was familiar with LTH. They have a Facebook page in case anyone is interested.

    Hope this helps, Nancy

    Not sure the details are completely worked out, but there's been lots of discussion about Binny's going in there.

    When I left the Jewel across the street on Chicago Avenue, I saw the sign for Binny's.

    Is anybody here a member of the Rogers Park Food Coop? Membership costs $250, but you can pay it in installments. I have a hard time believing that they are going to be able to come up with enough members to make a go of it. They just cannot compete price wise with Whole Foods on most things.
