I must admit, between the Fortinos at Main and Dundurn, the No Frills by Main and Wentworth, the Food Basics at Barton and Mary, The Farmers Market and all the smaller independent markets in between, I'm having a hard time picturing this "food desert".

A Co-op is still a nice idea despite my inability to see the "desert." But if it is going to be successful and a benefit for the whole community they are going to have to compete on price. A lot of people are struggling with their grocery bills these days and while "local produce and natural and organic foods" are great I'm not sure how many people in the downtown core are going to be willing or able to pay much of a premium for these things. I'd be extra diligent in my market research with this initiative.
