Ah Greenbelt, the proletariat capital of Maryland. This is the Co-Op and if you're a true Greenbelter, you'll support your local grocery. The selection is supprisingly big, considering the size, and the clientele is always an interesting mix of folks.

They double coupons that are less than $0.50, the last Wednesday of the month is "Customer Appreciation Day" for %5 off your total bill, and as a member, you'll get a profit sharing rebate at the end of the year. The store is generally not very crowded, even if the aisles are pretty tight, and the checkout is always very fast and friendly.

The premium bread is very tasty, but overpriced when fresh. If you want a good crusty treat, go for the day-old soudough loaf in the bakery remainder shopping cart. After a light sprinkling with water, and some time in the oven, it is almost as good as fresh, and still miles better than Safeway or Giant. They also get fresh daily deliferies of Chesapeke bagels which are, unsuprisingly, better than Giant or Safeway. At $.39/each they sell out quickly and are usually gone by the evening.

The produce is usually pretty disapointing, largely because they don't do the same volume as the big chains, and can't buy in bulk or sell fast enough to keep the stock fresh. Their specials are frequently very good, however, and if you catch them just of the truck, the quality/price can be excellent. The fresh parsely and cilantro are typically good buys. For $0.79, you get an ample portion of herb in a plastic wrapped foam tray.

One of the more remarkable aspects of the place is that they sell beer and wine in the store, and you can check it out along with the rest of your groceries. I'm not sure what loophole of Maryland law allows this, but it's nice to be able to pick up a bottle of wine for dinner or a case of beer for a cookout.

We don't eat land meat, so I can't comment on the bucher's dept, but the seafood is generally disapointing, just like most of the supermarkets in the are

PROS: Not crowded, sells beer/wine, speedy checkout, supporting local Co-Op
CONS: produce quality, higher prices, small aisles
