Where to get your groceries in Downtown Brooklyn
With Trader Joe’s coming to City Point later this year, Downtown Brooklyn is set to become one of the most envied grocery shopping destinations in the borough.
But you don’t have to wait for TJ’s doors to open to enjoy fresh produce and meats. Downtown is already booming with varied supermarkets and natural grocery shops to get you prepped for all your entertaining and hosting duties:
200 Schermerhorn Street
Brooklyn Fare is a full-service grocery store offering a vast selection of cheeses, olives, and even beer growlers with a rotating selection of local brews. All the shopping making you hungry? Stop at the deli counter for scrumptious sandwiches, main courses, and side dishes.
91 Tillary Street
Concord Market also boasts a full deli section and a wonderful coffee bar. Owned and operated by a family with deep roots in the Downtown Brooklyn community, the small business also has a bakery counter serving up mouth-watering cakes and pastries to satisfy any sweet tooth.
Downtown Natural Market
51 Willoughby Street
Stop by Downtown Natural Market to peruse aisles of affordable vitamins, tonics, teas, health foods, and informational books. There’s even a delicious smoothie menu and vegan lunch buffet at the back of the store to enjoy. Perfect for a nutritious afternoon pick-me-up.
Khim’s Millenium Market
111 Lawrence Street
This beloved Brooklyn health food chain is known for its winding aisles of organic produce, herbal teas, and everything in between. We also like Khim’s Millenium Market for a lunchtime alternative to the staid soup, salad, sandwich routine (though it sells all of those too) and stop in often for their sushi counter fare.
Metropolitan City Market
150 Myrtle Avenue
Metropolitan City Market is known to carry virtually any food item one might need – from traditional grocery items to an assortment of quality specialty food. The store also carries a wide range of dairy and frozen foods at affordable prices.
187 Atlantic Avenue
The ethnic delicatessen mecca of Brooklyn, this family-owned shop is a must-visit for both locals and tourists. Sahadi’s stocks all the Mediterranean essentials like spices, olives, dried fruits, nuts, and cheeses, as well as authentically-prepared Middle Eastern dishes.
City Point, 445 W Albee Square
On the second floor of City Point, this Downtown Brooklyn Target has a full grocery section, including organic produce and fresh groceries.
